The many sides of the Kermit Gosnell Story

Postby you must be joking » Sat Apr 13, 2013 6:44 am

The Philly Abortion Clinic story that just can’t seem to get any traction in the national press has me wondering about a couple of things. In order to have a further understanding of the story read the Grand Jury’s report. Report of the grand jury in Kermit Gosnell case ... edical.pdf

1. Why doesn’t the national press cover this story like they have in the cases of abortion doc’s who are murdered? When one abortion doc gets murdered the national press covers it for weeks if not months. Among many other crimes, this “Doctor” is accused of murdering one woman who died from an overdose and 7 viable babies who were outside the womb when he dispatched them with a cut to the spinal cord with a scissors but yet no real press coverage.
2. The Grand Jury report repeatedly asks why didn’t the State of Pennsylvania stop this monster when any reasonable person could see that the pattern of malpractice and murder was plain to see? And it wasn’t only the babies he murdered, by the States indifference and inaction, how many women were left to the “care” of this monster only to have themselves ripped apart, left sterile or dead as a result of this “safe and legal” procedure.
3. In consideration of the words taken from the Grand Jury Report, I quote: “So too with the National Abortion Federation. NAF is an association of abortion providers that upholds the strictest health and legal standards for its members. Gosnell, bizarrely, applied for admission shortly after Karnamaya Mongar’s death. Despite his various efforts to fool her, the evaluator from NAF readily noted that records were not properly kept, that risks were not explained, that patients were not monitored, that equipment was not available, that anesthesia was misused. It was the worst abortion clinic she had ever inspected. Of course, she rejected Gosnell’s application. She just never told anyone in authority about all the horrible, dangerous things she had seen.”
Why didn’t the woman from the National Abortion Federation, who in 2009 spend two, (2) days with Kermit Gosnell in his clinic, watching every aspect of his operation decide right then and there to call the authorities?
4. A violation of the HIPAA law that was passed by Congress in 1996 can result in as little as 100.00 for each violation and a year in jail up to 1.5 million in fines and 10 years in jail. From the Grand Jury Report pg. 94-95 The NAF evaluator conducted a site review on December 14 and 15, 2009: “Patient confidentiality is another important standard for NAF, and another that Gosnell flagrantly violated. The evaluator was troubled to find:
Throughout the office, there were patient charts everywhere. On desks, on this – the area in that upstairs sleeping area by the sleeping room. There were piles and piles and piles of medical records. That was – if that were in an area that was closed off and nobody had access to it, charts being stored there weren’t a big deal, but if there were patients in the sleeping room, who had to leave there to go to the restroom, they had full access to all of these people’s medical information if they wanted to look through it, it was very, very concerning to me.”

Why isn’t Gosnell charged with HIPAA violations?
5. Why aren’t abortion clinics regulated by the state and federal government as “Ambulatory Surgical Clinics”? If they were, this kind of horrific less than third world level of care would never be allowed to happen.
