  • The Philadelphia Inquirer has a story about Karnamaya Mongar, a woman who died at Kermit Gosnell’s abortion clinic. The West Philadelphia clinic was recently shut down because of deplorable conditions discovered by federal investigators looking for evidence of illegal prescription drug dealing:
  • 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.

  • ABC’s World News featured a report on the pro-life billboards in Atlanta attempting to raise awareness about the prevalence of abortion among African-American women. Newsbusters has the details. Here’s the clip:

  • The National Institutes of Health is proposing to change its definition of embryonic stem cells to include cells removed from very early embryos.
  • Rep. Bart Stupak says President Obama’s health care reform legislation is unacceptable on abortion:
  • “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.”
