The disturbing practice of Philadephia abortionist Gosnell appears to be a public relations disaster that keeps on giving. Jill Stanek has sunk her teeth into this story, and is chronicling his many violations of the minimum standards of abortion practice. She is now addressing the fact that an outside agency (National Abortion Federation) had observed Gosnell’s unsanitary and unsafe facilities, and failed to report them.
Pharmer would also like to bring up the fact that nearby hospitals had to be receiving Gosnell’s patients, and their ER staffs had to be aware that he was an abysmal practitioner. Botched abortions, incomplete abortions, infections, etc. all find their way into the neighboring hospitals, and after a time, the causative agent develops a negative reputation with police, paramedics, EMTs and emergency department staff. One of the dampening influences which prevent such abominations from coming to the attention of authorities is fear of HIPAA sanctions. Was this, (as well as the isolation of other hospitalized patients from their social support system), an intentional thing, or an unintended consequence of HIPAA regulations?
Abortion is a self feeding system of negativity that drives standards of care downward in every institution that it touches.
People who do abortions represent the substandard of health care. Abortion has invaded obstetrics and gynecology, and every institution which is touched by abortion has experienced decreased quality of staff and decreased quality of care.
Both abortion and euthanasia are cheap and easy ways to remove problems by eliminating the victims. Innovation in medicine has been driven by compassion for people who suffer with certain disorders and illnesses. When those people are killed off through abortion or euthanasia that impetus for innovation is removed. Additionally the killing erodes public trust in health care professionals. The force of life and creativity is attenuated and humanity devolves.
