No matter which side of the fence you're on re: abortion this is a real eye opener
26 June 2017 | by reviews1958See all my reviews

As a medical professional of over 35 years and Pro Choice, I wonder if Jennifer Lawrence or any other of the Hollywood so-called elite would still be doing their feel goods for Planned Parenthood within mins. of watching this (from start to finish) documentary. If they would they are as money grubbing and as heartless as Gosnell, his staff, and all of the government workers involved. In any industry if there is a need for a service with no oversight whatsoever, what occurs in this documentary will happen until the end of time. The silly thought of the departments who should've been inspecting this and other abortion clinic but not doing so because it would lessen accessibility for women to obtain abortions is just that - silliness. These health officials have turned back the hands of time and has directly caused abortions to be, essentially, done in back alleys with dirty coat hangers. It's a very sad state of affairs when those who are tasked with the oversight of the safety of citizens are not prosecuted and held liable themselves for turning their heads the other way when it is brought to their attention on numerous occasions of violations and murder. When the persons employed by the government start to view their job description as something they are supposed to do rather then something they're going to be paid for whether they do their job or not, this horrible practice will continue.

As for Gosnell - there is a higher being he will have to answer to one day and rest assured he will not get any life sentence but rather he will spend eternity having to look at and answer to each and every one of those he murdered. As for his staff members, the same goes for them. Being sheeple will not be an excuse to proclaim innocence...they all enjoyed the murdering they were doing day in and day out. No one should ever fool themselves to think anything is done any differently at Planned Parenthood either. Every person, from top to bottom, at Planned Parenthood will meet their maker and the selling of baby parts is going to be a very hard one to explain.
