Jonathan Tobin writes about how abortion advocates are often anti-science when it comes to late-term abortions in light of the recent New England Journal of Medicine study on the viability of premature children born at 22 weeks.
But for much of our political establishment, inconvenient facts such as those put forward by the New England Journal must be disregarded. Instead of coming to grips with the fact that allowing the practice of late term abortion is enabling the slaughter of many babies that could live, they remain in denial. Instead they make national heroines of politicians like Wendy Davis who filibustered a late term abortion bill that would protect the lives of infants that we know might be able to live apart from their mother if given sufficient medical care.
Auditors have revealed that South Carolina's Department of Health and Environmental Control hasn’t done the best job inspecting abortion clinics or punishing them for repeated problems.
The Legislative Audit Council said in a report that DHEC provided auditors with records for only 33 of the 42 inspections that should have been conducted from 2001 to 2014 at the three clinics in Charleston, Columbia, and Greenville.
The council also found that, with the exception of an expired license, DHEC imposed no penalties for violations, including for repeat violations such as expired medications and failure to properly dispose of medications, which could have brought fines of up to $1,000 on a second offense. Auditors suggested DHEC enforce a system of graduated penalties if repeat violations are found.
