National Abortion Federation president Vicki Saporta can't tell the truth about Gosnell and NAF
National Abortion Federation (NAF) president Vicki Saporta has an editorial in USA Today which boggles the mind. One would never know from reading it that abortionist Kermit Gosnell worked one day a week at a NAF clinic in Delaware. One would never know that various NAF clinics referred patients to Gosnell. One would never know that the state of North Carolina recently shut down a NAF clinic because it was an "imminent danger to the health, safety and welfare of the clients."
Instead, you would be left with the false idea that Gosnell was some lone wolf provider who preyed on women (the same women NAF clinics sent to him), Pennsylvania's unenforced abortion restriction led to Gosnell, no level of restrictions would have stopped Gosnell (umm.... how about regular inspections?), the NAF's application process is rigorous (so rigorous a NAF clinic hired Gosnell) and "women can be assured of receiving high-quality care at NAF member facilities" (except for that just closed NAF clinic in North Carolina).
Shouldn't USA Today do some bare bones fact-checking before publishing this garbage.
