When she was 16, Hawkins sought an abortion at a National Abortion Federation-certified abortion clinic, Hagerstown (Md.) Reproductive Health Services. The clinic told her she was 19 weeks pregnant and referred her to Gosnell.
This is the same National Abortion Federation that visited Gosnell’s clinic and decided NOT to certify him as one of theirs, but they didn’t report him to the Dept. of Health or the state.
The CEO of Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania, Dayle Steinberg, has admitted that her office knew about the conditions at Gosnell’s clinic, and yet, they never reported him.
This is a different story than Steinberg first gave when the truth of Gosnell’s ‘House of Horrors’ was discovered.
In February 2010, at the time Gosnell’s abortion clinic was raided by officials and shut down, PPSP CEO Dayle Steinberg told a local news outlet that the Planned Parenthood abortion facility has no knowledge of the horrors that happened at Gosnell’s center.
Local media outlet WHYY reported at that time that planned Parenthood had no foreknowledge: “Steinberg says she knows that Gosnell has provided abortions in Philadelphia for many years, but says she hadn’t heard of any problems at clinic until the allegations surfaced in recent days.”
Planned Parenthood has lied about their knowledge of Gosnell and they never reported him to the authorities. What else might they be hiding? Are they really looking out for the best interest of the women of Pennsylvania?
