Women Risk Death Just Exercising Their Rights

By now, the Kermit Gosnell wannabes are probably lining up. And why not?
All they need to do is take their folding tables and knives to any of the states where anti-abortion lawmakers have made it so tough for women to get one that they are now risking death or jail to end their pregnancies.
Gosnell is the uncertified Philadelphia OBGYN who set up shop in an area where he found a steady stream of desperate black, Hispanic, and immigrant women seeking abortions. According to news reports, his clinic hadn’t been inspected for nearly 18 years.
So while no one was looking, Gosnell apparently gave his poor, largely uneducated and non-English speaking patients even poorer treatment.
