Tennessee “Life Defense Act of 2012” And Its Accomplishments

The law requires doctors performing abortions at clinics to have hospital privileges. This is important because women injured in abortions need to be hospitalized with a minimum of trouble. A number of women have died because they were not transported to the hospital in time after a botched abortion.

One clinic owner, whose clinic had to close because of the law, said the following:

“I’ve been able to keep the doors open and the phone staff working up until this week,” she said in the letter. “We’ve been working on legal remedies, injunction, etc., but I was unable to bridge the financial gap of paying the monthly lease and operating expenses without knowing when we could resume seeing patients. … I’m so angry about this, also sad, and I’m grateful for whatever wisdom I possess that keeps me from feeling like a victim.”

Is this clinic worker a “victim?” Or does that designation pertain more properly to the babies aborted in her clinic?
