Two stories today put the lie to the claim that legal abortions are safe abortions:
A Louisiana abortion clinic has been shut down for failing to follow basic medical guidelines such as monitoring patients given anesthesia.
Following the botched abortion of a teenager, a Four-state abortion empire crumbles. The girl in question had to be flown to Johns Hopkins in Baltimore for emergency surgery which included repairs to her lacerated lower bowel.
In particular, the Louisiana case is interesting as it results from a new law which put abortion clinics under the medical safety regulations as hospitals. Nearly forty years later and some states are just now getting around to applying basic medical and safety regulations to abortuaries.
