Pro-choice activists opposed proposed regulations of abortion clinics in Pennsylvania. These regulations were prompted by the Kermit Gosnell incident.
According to the article:
“….the measure would hold abortion providers to the same standards as doctors providing any other medical procedure.”
From Rep. Jerry Stern, R-Blair, who supported the bill:
“I would think any woman who has a medical procedure performed at one of these clinics would want to be assured that the facility meets state minimum standards. The conditions and treatment that women have been subjected to at facilities such as the Women’s Medical Society in Philadelphia and the Allentown Medical Services are quite honestly disgraceful.”
