Abortion Facility Regulations

TypAll abortion facilities should be inspected and licensed, just like any other health care business.  Without high standards and detailed inspections, women are at risk for infection, complications, infertility, pain, and even death.  There need to be accountability and high standards that reflect that the lives and wellbeing of these vulnerable women are valued.  Someone needs to be held responsible for the medical outcomes of the women who choose to endure these procedures.  What happened in the case of Dr. Gosnell was barbaric, unconscionable, and illegal.  Those poor women were the victims of two men-  the fathers of their unwanted babies and Dr. Gosnell.  Men need to be held responsible for their actions and the women- the victims-  need protection, at least.  Inspect these facilities for cleanliness, for equipment, for properly trained personnel, for safety, for communication, for anything that could affect any outcome for these poor women!.e over this text and enter your comments here.
