In spite of mountains of evidence, Planned Parenthood and the rest of the abortion industry claim laws requiring abortion mills be licensed and meet minimum safety and health standards aren’t necessary. Recently a Virginia mill was shut down by health officials because of its deplorable conditions. Filth was everywhere, the two abortionists weren’t licensed, nobody washed their hands and a woman had to be rushed to the hospital because they botched her abortion and had no sutures to close the wound. One of the first things pro-abortion governor Terry McAuliffe did was to begin reversing Virginia’s abortion safety regulations. This tells us two things. The legal abortion industry has back-alley standards, and they don’t care about the women and their babies. It’s all about the money.
