resorted to the courts to block the health and safety regulations they consider "burdensome" (i.e., cutting into profits).
The abortion clinic owners want judges to overturn the legislature and force Kansas to mimic states like Delaware, where abortion clinics incredibly do not fall under the definition of medical facilities and avoid routine inspections. Delaware state oversight and inspections might have caught the notorious operator of a squalid abortion clinic, Dr. Kermit Gosnell, who worked in both Delaware and Pennsylvania abortion clinics. Dr. Gosnell has been charged with multiple counts of murder in the deaths of an immigrant woman and seven delivered babies whose spinal cords he cut with scissors in his Pennsylvania clinic.
States like Kansas get it.
Abortion is a business, and businesses tend to cut corners whenever possible to decrease costs and increase revenues.
Abby Johnson, a former clinic director of the billion-dollar Planned Parenthood enterprise, has revealed, "I was directed to double the number of abortions our clinic performed in order to drive up revenue."
Botched abortions at unsafe, unregulated clinics too often increase the death rate to include mother as well as baby. Requiring abortion clinics' adherence to the same health regulations that apply to similar clinics that don't kill their patients is a modest step toward holding women's safety above business profits.
