A writer said that abortion will be a rich woman’s right because the NEW house is going to outlaw state and federal funded elective abortion.
Another said, “While Roe established abortion as a legal right for women, current laws in many states mean women still have to cross state lines or face other restrictions to secure abortions.” This particular writer has been offering abortion in her New York abortion clinic since 1970 ASSISTING women that couldn’t get abortions in their home state.
The Gosnell case has come at a time and place, just days before the 38th anniversary of Roe v Wade, to bring to light exactly what abortion is: an abomination of slaughter.
“As shocking as this case is, it is in no way an anomaly,” Troy Newman of Operation Rescue said. “Shoddy and illegal practices characterize the abortion industry in America.” Gosnell was bad enough that the National Abortion Federation wouldn’t recognize him for membership, while NAF represents about 400 abortion providers, about half of all abortions performed each year.
Just like when you see just one roach, many more are hiding in the walls waiting for the lights to go out. Gosnell is one such roach and many more like him are out there, near our homes and kids. Finding them is the hard part. Unfortunately, we have to wait for something horrific to happen to find them. But find them we will. Gosnell is a back-alley abortionist that happens to have an office. His office conditions are deplorable, his staff not licensed or trained, dead babies stored in biohazard materials.
The back alley abortion has been part of urban myth for years…let me clarify: yes, there was such a thing before Roe, but the numbers are way out of wack. According to the U.S. Bureau of Vital Statistics, there were only 39 women who died from illegal abortions in 1972. Read on:
Former medical director of Planned Parenthood, Dr. Mary Calderone, described in a 1960 American Journal of Health article that a study in 1958 showed that 84% to 87% of all illegal abortions were performed by licensed physicians in good standing. Dr. Calderone concluded that “90% of all illegal abortions are presently done by physicians.” So it seems that the “back-alley butchers” of January 21, 1973, became “caring doctors who believe in a woman’s right to choose” on January 22, 1973…..The CDC reports that after abortion was legalized in January of 1973, there were 615,831 legal abortions. In 1976 when there were 988,267 abortions. There weren’t over a million legal abortions a year in the United States until the end of 1977, five years after abortion was made legal in all states.

Roe started as a ‘right to privacy’. It will end as a holocaust.
