Well, I feel better already.

The billion dollar abortion industry claims to be very, very concerned about the abortionist Steven Brigham.  In fact, the National Abortion Rights Action League Pro-Choice Virginia is “furious” that Brigham “would prey on women” and urged the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) to rely on the advice of the industry’s “trusted network of abortion providers,” the National Abortion Federation (NAF) in its “next steps.”

Trusted.

That’s a really cool word.  Almost seems a bit focused group tested, no?

So, just who trusts NAF to ensure “high quality abortion care”?

Certainly not the Pennsylvania Grand Jury that brought the indictment in the Kermit Gosnell case.  You see, NAF was well aware of the horrible conditions at that now infamous abortion center, going so far as to not certify that facility.  Except…

We understand that NAF’s goal is to assist clinics to comply with its standards, not to sanction them for deficiencies. Nevertheless, we have to question why an evaluator from NAF, whose stated mission is to ensure safe, legal, and acceptable abortion care, and to promote health and justice for women, did not report Gosnell to authorities.

…as bad as it was, NAF never reported what they found.

To anyone.

Ever

In fact, even while NAF was calling Gosnell an “outlier” (a word oft repeated by the abortion industry and its defenders when a facility or facility owner is found to be rather nasty) and condemning him in the media, he was practicing one day a week at another NAF certified facility in Delaware

NAF is trusted only by its own industry, mostly because it provides sufficient cover (i.e. the media buys it) by claiming to provide oversight.  Oh, and the media.  Definitely trusted by the media.

The good news: NARAL is “thankful” that in the case of Brigham’s NOVA abortion center, VDH “took quick action” and suspended its license, after a 52-page inspection report uncovered horrific conditions. 

What NARAL doesn’t say, of course, is that it along with Planned Parenthood have from the beginning fought against the very abortion center health and safety standards that helped expose the Brigham abortion center, including inspections – the very thing that gives health officials an opportunity to expose the Brigham’s of the world.

Media statements aside, what the abortion industry is truly “furious” about is that the truth is coming out.
