    I don't have an abortion agenda. Abortion is legal and under absolutely no threat

    At least hopefully a little publicity will open people's eyes to realize that this isn't such an isolated incident after all. If the media will actually do their job and report the news.

    Abortion rights advocates have asserted that Gosnell was an "extreme outlier" and opposed legislation to increase regulation of Pennsylvania abortion clinics as they have in other states. But how could they possibly know that this is an aberration?

    Last week, Ohio officials shut down an abortion clinic after inspectors found that a medical assistant administered narcotics to five patients, that narcotics and powerful sedatives weren't properly accounted for, that pharmacy licenses had expired and that four staff members hadn't been screened for a communicable disease.

    This month, a Delaware TV station reported that two Planned Parenthood nurses resigned in protest over conditions at a clinic there. One nurse, Jayne Mitchell-Werbrich, said, "It was just unsafe. I couldn't tell you how ridiculously unsafe it was."

    Last month, Maryland officials shut down three abortion clinics, two for failings in their equipment and training to deal with life-threatening complications.

    Last year, an Associated Press investigation found that Illinois hadn't inspected some abortion clinics for 10 to 15 years. After state health officials reinvigorated their clinic inspections in the wake of Gosnell, inspectors closed two clinics, including one fined for "failure to perform CPR on a patient who died after a procedure," according to AP.

    That's awesome. The safer the better. No one would argue that women should have to suffer unsafe abortions. The more finding and access women have for clean, safe, and above all- competent- caregivers, the better!!!

    Exactly what Melissa said. I'm all for showing the public about awful facilities and the sad thing is it is not just abortion clinics. There are many awful places that people seek care because that's all they have.

    Great glad we can count on your votes when they try to increase regulation on abortion clinics in your area.

    You mean safety regulations, funding, etc? The free birth control is a great start, and now OTC MAP is another help! Obama is already doing a great job of lowering the need for abortions in the first place ~ now if we can increase the funding and safety to keep access available and safety standards high, well ~ Yes, whoever "we" is has my vote!

    If you mean trying to deny women access ~ of course that is not what I would be voting for. That sort of thing is what makes women do desperate things like get late term abortions..........or drives them to madmen like this monster. No one in their right mind would be in favor of that, right Gloria?

    How are abortions paid for in the US or by state? Varies? Paid for by patient? Paid for by taxes?

    It varies, some private insurance covers it, some Medicaid plans cover it (In Mass. they do) other than that it is private pay.

    Regulation as in safety and hygiene regulations? Absolutely. I'm always in favor of people having safe medical services.

    Lisa, my insurance would cover it. Many women who qualify get abortions at Planned Parenthood, which is funded with tax dollars, ditto medicaid, others pay out of pocket.
