Nothing wrong here, according to the NYT

Abortion butcher shop “somehow” escaped state supervision, claims the Times. Here’s the real story:

 ProPublica: Why a Gruesome Pennsylvania Abortion Clinic Had Not Been Inspected for 17 Years.

According to the grand jury report released this week by Philadelphia prosecutors, Pennsylvania health officials deliberately chose not to enforce laws to ensure that abortion clinics provide the same level of care as other medical service providers. . . .

The grand jury report said that one look at the place would have detected the problems, but the Pennsylvania Department of Health hadn’t inspected the place since 1993. Here’s the grand jury report, in surprisingly strong language:

The Pennsylvania Department of Health abruptly decided, for political reasons, to stop inspecting abortion clinics at all. The politics in question were not anti-abortion, but pro. With the change of administration from Governor Casey to Governor Ridge, officials concluded that inspections would be “putting a barrier up to women” seeking abortions.

“Even nail salons in Pennsylvania are monitored more closely for client safety,” the report states. “Without regular inspections, providers like Gosnell continue to operate; unlawful and dangerous third-trimester abortions go undetected; and many women, especially poor women, suffer.”

Until this morning, I’d have placed  Pro Publica firmly to the left of the NYT. Obviously, that has changed. Pro Publica cares about poor women – the Times does not.

  1. CORVINO ! should take notes

    His hospital is flooded with quack doctors. Yet he still parties on like there is no tomorrow. As long as dumb Greenwich residents contribute to this society doctor club, change (like dumping Corvino) will never happen. Make it happen, do not contribute to Greenwich Hospital. Dump Corvino and his staff now.
