I don’t even have words for this. For those who do not have the time to read the full story:


…this isn’t solely a story about babies having their heads severed, though it is that. It is also a story about a place where, according to the grand jury, women were sent to give birth into toilets; where a doctor casually spread gonorrhea and chlamydiae to unsuspecting women through the reuse of cheap, disposable instruments; an office where a 15-year-old administered anesthesia; an office where former workers admit to playing games when giving patients powerful narcotics; an office where white women were attended to by a doctor and black women were pawned off on clueless untrained staffers.

I’m honestly in shock right now, that is unbelievable and @EffieTrinket: you’re absolutely right it’s not about debating abortion.  The treatment those women received was horrific, what happened to those babies is increadibly sad and distrubing.  I thought of all the couples I know who have had such a difficult time having a child of their own, those babies could have had wonderful lives with other families.  The fact that it went on for as long as it did without being shut down is just nuts, I think all those agencies listed in the article need to be held accountable for their actions, or lack thereof I should say.

@bowsergirl:  Thank you for the snippet. I don’t have the heart or constitution to read the whole article. Already I’m going to have to walk away from the computer after reading that little bit.


@EffieTrinket:  The lack of serious media coverage on some really terrible situations happens all of the time. I mean Stuebenville would have never gotten the attention it did had it not been for Anonymous. Sadly, cases similar to that one are alarmingly common. I wonder how many people on this board knew that the University of Montana is currently under investigation by the federal government for their appalling treatment of sexual assault cases on campus.

It makes me so sad and angry that the one institution, media, whose sole purpose is to keep the populace aware of NEWS has evolved into an entertainment industry. It’s all about ratings. You would think with several 24hr news outlets that a wide array of events would be covered. Ugh ugh ugh.

I posted a similar topic earlier this morning!!! but I got minimal response. I’m going to steal what my friend said about it on FB again because it does a good job summing up how I feel. 

This is not about “pro-life” or “pro-choice.” It’s about a man who is already on trial for infanticide and murder, and the media’s precious little coverage of the horror that occurred in his clinic, which went unregulated for 17 years. This is a human rights issue.

I’ve read about him, it truly makes me sick to my stomach and I just cannot even imagine the horror.

@EffieTrinket Yeah I saw the thing about Ryan Seacrest on CNN’s homepage, I was like THIS IS NOT NEWS. Sadly so many people read that shit and think it is.

I read this a few days ago and posted the same question on facebook. It seems to finally be coming to light on the news slowly but surely. This story made me sick to my stomach I literally almost got sick. So many people would have loved those babies, and those women were treated terribly as well. What a horrible man.
