PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A doctor whose abortion clinic was a filthy, foul-smelling “house of horrors” that was overlooked by regulators for years was charged Wednesday with murder, accused of delivering seven babies alive and then using scissors to kill them.
In a nearly 300-page grand jury report filled with ghastly, stomach-turning detail, prosecutors said Pennsylvania regulators ignored complaints of barbaric conditions at Dr. Kermit Gosnell’s clinic, which catered to poor, immigrant and minority women in the city’s impoverished West Philadelphia section.
Prosecutors called the gruesome case a “complete regulatory collapse.”
“Pennsylvania is not a third-world country,” the district attorney’s office declared in the report. “There were several oversight agencies that stumbled upon and should have shut down Kermit Gosnell long ago.”
Gosnell, 69, was arrested and charged with eight counts of murder altogether in the alleged killings of seven babies and the death of a woman from an overdose of painkillers. Nine of Gosnell’s employees – including his wife, a cosmetologist – also were charged…(Read More)
Here is audio of Rush Limbaugh yesterday dropping truly shocking abortion statistics being reported by ABC New York (their article actually says 39%). In New York City, 41% of all pregnancies end in abortion – and the rate among minorities is even higher (60% among Blacks, 41% among Hispanics, 23% among Asians). The rate among “Non-Hispanic Whites” in 2009 was 20%.
Rush takes issue with the leftist takeaway from those numbers – That there is something wrong with “birth control education” in New York! Rush makes the case that there is actually something wrong with the behavior of people – that “abstinence” works “every time it’s tried.” He also points out that the real question is, “Who’s making all the money from the abortions?”
Limbaugh also quoted from a report that says “abortion kills more Black Americans than the seven leading causes of death – combined.”

Princeton professor Melissa Harris-Lacewell calls abortion providers “termination services” on Rachel Maddow’s MSNBC show.
“I think clearly every time we move more aggressively against women’s reproductive rights, the more that we will see the consequences show up in everything from health care policy, to potentially actually moving towards reducing the opportunities for women to find healthy, safe, termination services.”Read more: Newsbusters
Here is a video report on former pro-life Republican Charlie Crist’s decision to veto an abortion bill that would have required women who are seeking abortions to undergo an ultrasound first. The bill would have also banned the use of taxpayer money obtained from the new health care reform law to fund abortions.

Democrats are seeking to lift the ban on abortions at overseas military hospitals, a move that would be in keeping with their commitment to the radical pro-abortion agenda espoused by President Obama. They are trying to do it by attaching an amendment to that effect to the Defense Authorization Bill.
As an Illinois State Senator, Obama would not even support the “Infants Born Alive Protection Act,” which required that life-sustaining measures be taken for babies that survived botched abortion procedures. Obama essentially supported infanticide – allowing those infants to be set aside to die, even though they were out of the womb and alive.
Now, as President, Obama is trying to make good on his commitment to the pro-abortion forces that helped to put him in the Oval Office. It is unclear whether Democrats will have the votes to end the ban on abortions at Overseas Military Hospitals – a move which will use Federal Funds to pay for abortions, since Military Hospitals are federally funded.
By the way – the law already allows abortion at military hospitals in the case of rape, incest, or if the life of the mother is at risk. So, that is NOT what Obama is concerned about.
What else would you expect from a President who said he does not want his daughters to be “punished with a baby” if they make a mistake:
