Corbett Cracking Down

Pennsylvania governor Tom Corbett (R) has announced new inspection mandates in the wake of last month's arrest of a Philadelphia area "doctor" who is charged with 8 counts of murder...

"Seven employees of the state's Departments of Health and State have been fired or have resigned since a grand jury issued in January a devastating report regarding those agencies' shortcomings in overseeing the Women's Medical Society in west Philadelphia, Corbett told reporters. The Republican governor announced a series of changes in each department, including the requirement that each abortion clinic will be inspected annually and will be subject to random inspections.

Abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell, the owner of the clinic, was charged with eight counts of murder -- one in the death of a 41-year-old woman and seven in the deaths of viable, fully delivered children who were killed outside the womb. The grand jury reported that a February 2010 raid of the clinic found deplorable conditions, which resulted in its closing and Gosnell's medical license being suspended.

The grand jury report found there had been no state inspection of the clinic since 1993 in spite of complaints.

"This doesn't even rise to the level of government run amok," Corbett said in a statement. "It was government not running at all. To call this unacceptable doesn't say enough. It's despicable."

Kudos to Gov. Corbett for announcing such change. Perhaps certain members of the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement might wish to leap to the defense of Gosnell and explain how it isn't murder to take the life of a viable, late-term infant.

Turning a blind eye to details by our agencies. Why does that not surprise me?

My home state of Victoria, Australia has some of the most liberal abortion laws in the world. A year or so ago I ran into a pro-life Catholic group who were picketing the Australian Labor
Party's state conference, held in Melbourne. It was a Labor government that enacted these laws, but sadly the Liberal/National Coalition (Australia's conservative and farmers' parties, respectively) also voted in favour of these laws.

I personally know the author, and lots of people on the left in this part of the world hate him.
