Mongar was about 18 or 19 weeks pregnant on that November night, Ghalley said. Her husband could not accompany her because “he just got a job in a chicken factory.”…
Ghalley’s first impression of the Philadelphia facility – a shabby, three-story brick structure with a two-story annex – was not good.
“So dirty. Dirty, bloody, a lot of people waiting,” Ghalley recalled. “I was thinking at that time, maybe he [the doctor] was cheaper.”
Later, as Ghalley watched his sister being put in the ambulance, a clinic employee and his niece began crying.
The story also notes that abortionist Gosnell is no stranger to run-ins with the law.
The suspension is the latest trouble for Gosnell, who has been named as a defendant in 46 civil suits – 10 of them medical-malpractice cases – since 1981….
This is not the first time PA has suspended Gosnell’s license. In 1996, he temporarily lost it for allowing a physician’s assistant to treat patients. He got it back after paying a $1k penalty….
Gosnell also skirted the state’s abortion control in 2007 when he performed an abortion on a minor without her parents’ consent. It became public when the parents brought a civil suit for assault. Gosnell paid $10k to settle the case.
“The Senate language is a significant departure from current law and is unacceptable,” said Stupak. “While the President has laid out a health care proposal that brings us closer to resolving our differences, there is still work to be done before Congress can pass comprehensive health care reform.”
