Both Planned Parenthood and NARAL claim to have “condemned” Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell’s actions as “reprehensible.” The question, however, is what it is they actually believe he has done that deserves condemnation. Many of the same “horrors” found in Gosnell’s clinic have been discovered in Planned Parenthood clinics as well.
Kristi Burton Brown of Live Action News, a site devoted to undercover investigations to expose the abortion industry, believes this question needs to be asked in light of the fact that nearby Delaware Planned Parenthood has been discovered with “similar filthy and unsafe conditions.”
Brown reports that, on April 10th, an ABC News affiliate in Delaware announced a one-day closing and a temporary end to surgical abortions at Planned Parenthood of Delaware. Though the clinic claimed to require closure for a “routine cleaning,” ABC indicated that the state had “confirmed a new investigation.”
According to the ABC report, since January of 2013, five 911 calls have been placed from the facility for women in emergency situations. The high number of 911 calls in a short period of time “prompted a new investigation by the Delaware Department of Health and the State Board of Professional Licensure.”
Brown observes that this new investigation is especially problematic since Planned Parenthood of Delaware has been teaching others how to perform abortions while, at the same time, the clinic provides unacceptable medical care to its own patients.
Two nurses, former employees of Planned Parenthood of Delaware, provided some observations to the ABC affiliate. Jayne Mitchell-Werbrich and Joyce Vasikonis described horrific conditions such as the abortionist’s refusal to wear gloves, because “he didn’t think he needed to wear them,” failure to wash down the operating table, and the usage of unsterile instruments.
