Dirty Little Secrets
Shine the light on the abortion industry and expect to find a heap of dirty little secrets. Yet another detailed report on the appalling conduct of a dozen more abortion mills is in the hands of authorities this week.
An undercover team of investigators called upon the Texas facilities, documenting an atrocious reality. Young women were treated like nothing more than a sales transaction and exploited to the fullest extent. Counselors repeatedly brushed aside mandatory waiting periods and offered to hide the sexual abuse of children. Conditions outside the buildings were no better. Employees tossed hundreds of patient records into overflowing dumpsters, along with partially-full prescription drug containers, bloody instruments and human flesh.
But the problem doesnt stop with a flagrant disregard for public health and safety. Texas requires abortion mills to give potential clients information about parental rights (like a fathers duty to provide child support) along with specifics about abortion procedures. But investigators found women being passed off to unintelligible, prerecorded conference calls. We dont understand anything hes saying, one caller complained. Youve already complied, a staffer replied, thats all you need.
One facility responded to the list of violations by attacking the investigators. With little else to say, they claimed to comply with annual inspections. But so did Kermit Gosnell, the abortionist behind the awful house of horrors in Philadelphia! These are not isolated incidents. The problem is bigger. For far too long, the abortion industry has gotten a free pass. Big money and a fear of offending a shrinking number of pro-abortion activists turns heads the other direction.
The people who claim to be pro-woman and pro-choice are keeping women in the dark about their options and rights. Theyre also risking womens lives and future fertility by performing back-alley-type abortion services. Tragically, the baby dies every time. But what was once a dirty little secret is now clearly, openly documented. Now that the evidence is in the hands of state authorities, its time to clean up the mess.
