Tara Murtha at Philadelphia Weekly has a story out this morning about how the Kermit Gosnell case is being used to shut down abortion clinics.
From her story:
While Kermit Gosnell — if convicted, perhaps the nation’s first serial baby-killer — sits in a cell awaiting trial in March, his name has been everywhere. Ever since the grand jury presentment detailing his alleged crimes of infant murder, illegal late-term abortions, drug trafficking and associated offenses was published in January of 2011, anti-choice legislators and activists nationwide have used his name to grease the passage of new abortion-clinic regulations.
After several examples in Pennsylvania, she says, the governor of Virginia is now invoking Gosnell in the introduction of new safety standards.
