Macabre abortion mill went unchecked for nearly two decades

A 300-page grand jury report on a lurid abortion mill in Philadelphia reveals that Pennsylvania health officials deliberately chose not to enforce laws to ensure abortion clinics provided the same level of care as other medical service providers, ProPublica reports. The officials were following then Gov. Tom Ridge's policy to end regular abortion clinic inspections. The policy began in the mid-1990s and continued until 2010. At the sham clinic, live and viable babies in their third trimester were regularly and illegally delivered, and then staff killed these newborns with scissors, according to the report. Article
