Tougher regulations post-Gosnell force five abortion clinics to close

LifeSiteNews is reporting that five abortion clinics in Pittsburgh have closed as the result of tougher safety regulations adopted as a result of the Kermit Gosnell trial.  Last week a Philadelphia jury convicted the abortion doctor of murder for the killing of babies born alive in his clinic, and for the death of one patient.  The new regulations took effect last June.

There are now only two abortion clinics in the Pittsburgh area. A Planned Parenthood clinic was among those that were shut down.  Upgrading the clinics to conform to the new regulation has forced those clinics that stayed open hundreds of thousands of dollars to comply. When the new regulations were adopted, only one of the state’s 22 abortion clinics met them.
