Abortion clinics are houses of horror


I recently read an Associated Press article in the local newspaper about the inspection of abortion clinics in Illinois. It confirms what pro-life people have been saying for years about what goes on inside abortion clinics.

For openers, they have not been inspected by the state for 15 years! And in one clinic a patient died when the clinic’s staff failed to perform CPR on her after a procedure. In another clinic, “late-term abortions were routinely performed by untrained staff and viable newborns died by having their spinal cords cut with a scissors.” (Quad-City Times, Jan. 22, 2012)

Authorities there described this clinic as a filthy “house of horrors.”

It makes you wonder how many other abortion clinics in other states are operating under the same conditions.


Think about it. They should each be labeled a house of horrors. And yet the killing of helpless babies in the womb goes on.
