WASHINGTON (BP) – Republicans in Congress are calling for investigations of abortion clinics and cooperation from states to prevent the kind of murderous and horrific practices described in the trial of Kermit Gosnell. GOP members of both the Senate and House of Representatives have called for Congress to investigate and remedy “abusive, unsanitary, and illegal abortion practices.” Leaders of two House committees, meanwhile, have written attorneys general and health department officials seeking information on the regulation of abortion clinics in all 50 states.
Both letters refer to Gosnell, the Philadelphia abortion doctor who faces four counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of viable children who were killed after delivery and a count of third-degree murder in the death of a mother during an abortion.
Since the trial began, evidence of other United States clinics unwilling to aid infants who survive abortion has surfaced in undercover videos by a pro-life organization.
