Remember Kermit Gosnell? Governor-Elect Wolf Just Nominated the Guy Who Ignored the Problem!
A few days ago, Governor-elect Tom Wolf announced he wants Pedro Cortes to be his Secretary of State. One of the responsibilities of the Secretary of State is to oversee individual physicians, inspect abortion facilities and enforce safety regulations in PA. A grand jury investigation in January 2011 found that the Secretary of State had repeatedly ignored evidence and closed investigations even in the midst of escalating complaints about Gosnell’s abortion clinic.
Philly District Attorney Seth Williams said at the time, Gosnell “induced labor, forced the live birth of viable babies in the sixth, seventh, eighth month of pregnancy and then killed those babies by cutting into the back of the neck with scissors and severing their spinal cord.”
