Our expose of the disturbing Virginia Department of Health inspection reports on Virginia’s abortion centers yesterday has caused quite a stir. The abortion industry and its apologists have been a caught off guard on these indefensible health violations — practices that we long have suspected transpire at these facilities. Now we know why the abortion lobby in Richmond has fought so long and hard against inspections, something almost every industry, from restaurants to construction sites, must undergo for the protection of consumers and employees alike. Here is a sampling of some of the media coverage, starting with a report from WWBT-TV/nbc12.com in Richmond:
WWBT-TV/NBC12, famous for its restaurant inspection series, gave serious attention to the Department of Health findings on abortion center health safety concerns in a report last evening. Eighty violations will get the media’s attention.
Also reporting was the Associated Press via the Washington Post;
a blog we just discovered, but which has much to say, saynsumthn, published this piece; and
Much of the mainstream media rolled the news into larger pieces about tomorrow’s Board of Health meeting that will vote on new, permanent abortion center safety standards: The Richmond Times-Dispatch barely gave notice, adding it toward the end of its article, here. However, the Norfolk Virginian-Pilot’s Julian Walker gave it much more ink, here.
We’ll update the coverage of this important and shocking news here and in our daily News Clips over the next few days.
