Democrats who would support such a bill should be asked - what regulations for abortion clinics do you support?
Per the Grand Jury report on the Gosnell case:
Mrs. Mongar’s slim chances of survival were seriously hampered because it was exceedingly difficult for responders to get her to the waiting ambulance. The emergency exit was locked. Gosnell sent Ashley to the front desk to look for the key, but she could not find it. Ashley told us that a firefighter needed to cut the lock, but “It took him awhile … because the locks is old.” She testified that it took “twenty minutes, probably trying to get the locks unlocked.” Mrs. Gurung and her mother-in-law ran outside, crying. Mr. Ghalley and Mrs. Gurung, frightened, watched the firefighters struggling to get the door open, while Karnamaya Mongar lay motionless. After cutting the locks, responders had to waste precious more minutes trying to maneuver through the narrow cramped hallways that could not accommodate a stretcher.

ASFs stands for ambulatory service facilities. That clinic didn’t have to meet certain standards in regards to the width of hallways etc. because it didn’t have to meet ambulatory service facility standards - there was no regulation in place. That could have contributed to Mrs. Mongar’s death, because if it had been easier to get her out of the clinic to get to the hospital, she may have been saved in time.
How many injuries and maybe deaths could there have been at abortion clinics, without the regulations that currently exist in many states?!
