The Abortion Industry
In June of 2012, in response to the horrific Kermit Gosnell Case a new set of regulations “ACT 122” went into effect requiring abortion facilities to be licensed as outpatient surgical centers and subject to regular inspections.
These Regular Inspection Report are available here. The State Inspections have revealed that the abortion industry fails to comply with state regulations. Over the years, Philadelphia area abortion facilities have “failed to provide a safe and sanitary environment,” and reports reveal “dirty instruments,” and “darkened stains on patient benches,” among other safety and health violations.
The Abortion Industry is a business, built on disregard for human life. “In 2014, there were 32,126 abortions performed in Pennsylvania” and according to the 2015 Facility Report compiled based on the individual reports from facilities, there were 16,163 Abortion performed in Greater Philadelphia.
