Abortion and Women's Rights

        A perceptive reader of this blog forwarded me an email that warned in bold print: "Republicans are waging an all-out war on women." The email was sent from Emily's List, which according to its website is "a community of progressive Americans dedicated to electing pro-choice Democratic women to every level of office."

       According to the email, Republicans are "viciously assaulting" women because they want to defund abortion providers like Planned Parenthood. Supporters are urged to sign a petition in opposition to the women-hating, rights-denying Republicans.

        This is yet another ploy by pro-abortion forces to convince women that there is an attack on their rights. They leave the impression that Planned Parenthood is a beacon of "freedom" and "liberty" for women, and that those who oppose government funding of such a perilous organization are somehow trying to suppress women and take away their rights. The woman who forwarded the email to me was smarter than that. I think other women are smarter than that, too!

Inspections Uncover More Atrocities in PA

        In the wake of the egregious discoveries made at Dr. Gosnell's "house of horrors" in Philadelphia, state health officials renewed inspections of abortion clinics across Pennsylvania. The inspections uncovered more atrocities, especially at two clinics operated by Dr. Soleiman M. Soli.

          At Dr. Soli's clinics, health officials found fetal tissue in unsecured containers, drugs that were decades past their expiration dates, uncapped medications and syringes on the floor, non-certified and inoperable pieces of equipment, and sterile trays of instruments that were not wrapped properly. Officials also learned that patients were routinely discharged while groggy. A secretary said they walked out as if in "a drunken state."

        Dr. Soli, who received his degree from Shiraz University of Medical Sciences in Iran, had been sued for malpractice at least six times since 1981. Rather than take corrective action to clean up his clinics in Bensalem and the Germantown section of Philadelphia, Soli abruptly retired.

        "This is a prime example of where an abortionist would rather close down his seedy abortion operation rather than go to the trouble to clean it up," said Troy Newman, President of the pro-life organization Operation Rescue. "This attitude displays a gross lack of concern for the health and safety of women, since he would have been glad to keep operating under dangerous conditions if the Health Department had not stepped in."  

        Of course, the greatest atrocity is the fact that countless unborn boys and girls were brutally murdered in Dr. Soli's clinics for decades.
