Alveda King Calls Out the Philadelphia Board of Health for Voting to Fund Abortions for All Poor Women

The same Philadelphia Board of Health that ignored Gosnell's House of Horrors is at it again! After ignoring several demands from local citizens and outraged prolife civil rights leaders calling to end the terrors of abortion in their city, the Board of Health has passed a new resolution last Friday, Feb. 15, 2013 calling for the federal government and the state of Pennsylvania to fund all abortions for poor women.

Haven't they harmed enough women already? Now they want to go back for more killing.

They want you to forget that they turned a blind eye to Kermit Gosnell's abortion killing center until the whistle blew so loud in 2011 that they had to take action on Gosnell, the doctor whose abortion clinic was a filthy, foul-smelling "house of horrors" that was overlooked by regulators for years. Gosnell was finally charged with murder, accused of delivering seven babies alive and then using scissors to kill them. At least one mother's death by abortion has also been linked to Gosnell's clinic.

According to Brenda Green, executive director of CHOICE, a nonprofit that connects the underinsured and uninsured with health services, The Pennsylvania Department of Health did nothing when they became aware of the death of Karnamaya Mongar a woman whose gruesome abortion at Gosnell's hands resulted in the gruesome death of Ms. Mongar.

Ms. Green tried to report complaints from clients, but the health department wouldn't accept complaints from a third party. Instead, the patients had to fill out a daunting five-page form, available only in English, that required them to reveal their identities upfront and be available to testify in Harrisburg. Even with CHOICE staffers there to help, only two women agreed to fill out the form, and both decided not to submit it. The Department of State and the Philadelphia Public Health Department also had ample warning of dire conditions and took no action.

Now this same process of ignoring the problems associated with abortionists in their town is prompting the Philadelphia Board of Health to go back and kill more babies, and put the health and livelihood of more mothers in jeopardy.

Hundreds of other babies likely died in the squalid clinic that Dr. Kermit Gosnell ran from 1979 to 2010, Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams said at a news conference.

Even though Pennsylvania law prohibits abortion after 24 weeks except to save the life of the mother or avoid serious health risk to her, Gosnell was charged with murder, infanticide, conspiracy, abortion at 24 or more weeks and other charges. The Board of Health ignored these facts as long as they could. They want you to forget that they were in league with Gosnell's deeds, guilty by association and by looking the other way.
