Abortion performed in proper conditions are one of the safest medical procedures provided in the United States. Gosnell’s clinic, which was the last refuge for many low-income women, illustrated the horrors of the unsafe, back-alley abortions that are all too common in parts of the world where abortion is illegal.
Gosnell’s clinic is the extreme exception, not the rule. Anti-choicers are to blame for this. Pro-lifers are to blame for women seeking these horrifying conditions, beacuse they’d rather risk their health and life than deal with the shame and trauma they’d be put through on the sidewalk outside a legal clinic. Pro-lifers are to blame for this clinic, by actively supporting legislation that is making it increasingly difficult for women to access safe, legal, and affordable abortion, forcing them into clinics and situations like these.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again—pro-lifers have blood on their hands, and here is your proof. This is where you’re forcing us to go, these are the lives you’re stealing.
Gosnell is going to face punishment (possibly the death penalty) for what he did - and that’s the thing, pro-lifers want to act like this shit is the norm for abortion clinics, and this case right here should show them otherwise.(via abaldwin360)
