The Philadelphia Horror

Perhaps you've seen the anemic local news coverage of the case of Dr. Kermit Gosnell and his Women's Medical Society clinic in west Philadelphia, and thought, oh well, just another badly-run abortion mill.

But this one's different.

For an intelligent and detailed summary, go to MercatorNet. There you'll also find a link to a PDF of the full Grand Jury report, which I highly recommend reading, if you have a strong stomach. A very strong stomach. And lots of your favorite means of mood-improvement ready to hand, because you are going to need it.

Especially if you're Catholic, because part of the story involves the suspension of abortion clinic inspections by "Catholic" pro-choice former governor Tom Ridge. I wonder how many "pastoral" contacts Gov. Ridge had from his various bishops on the subject of his support for abortion?
