Regulate Everything!

...except murder clinics:

A Kansas City abortionist is out of business after investigators discovered a grisly house of horrors at his clinic – with fetuses kept in Styrofoam cups in his refrigerator and one employee accusing him of microwaving one and stirring it into his lunch.


Topping the list of horrors was an employee's account that she and others witnessed Rajanna "microwave one of the aborted fetuses and stir it into his lunch," as Howard recalled earlier this year when testifying before a Kansas House committee.


"Dr. Rajanna lacked personal hygiene," testified Howard. "His hair was messy, hands dirty, and his clothing was wrinkled and stained. He put on old, used foot booties while we were there."
Wait, wait, wait. Just a minute. So this guy ate some aborted fetuses, who cares? I thought "it" wasn't a human until, when was it a again? They keep changing the cutoff. Well, whatever the actual day that "it" becomes "human" had certainly not come for these "its", so who cares? Let this guy munch away.

Ok, now that I have sufficiently disgusted even myself (no small task after gross anatomy)...

The cannibalism stuff is almost unbelievable and I, for one, will leave that to a DA and jury to hash out. The thing about this piece that strikes me is the abhorrent lack of regulation of abortion clinics in Missouri. Are things this loose in other parts of the country as well?

With Rajanna's case pending, abortion opponents won legislative approval of a bill requiring abortion clinics to obtain an annual license from the Department of Health and Environment, hire surgeons as their medical directors and report patient deaths to the state within a day. The measure also mandated that the department set standards for equipment, medical screenings, ventilation and lighting.
Are you kidding me?! You mean to tell me that abortion clinics, which perform invasive medical procedures, do not need a license?! And, when a law to rectify this deficiency was passed by the state legislature:

...Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, an abortion-rights advocate, vetoed the measure, saying medical professionals – not legislators – should set standards.
So...who, exactly, makes up the Department of Health and Environment? I can't seem to find their website...but I would bet dollars to doughnuts that there are at least a few doctors involved.

Of course, the license issue was not the only thing one rejected by Gov. Kathy. No, she also thought that it would be far too restrictive to require murder clinics to be clean, well equipped, ventilated and lighted. At the very least this reporter got the governor's label right. She is an abortion-rights advocate, no more and no less. Certainly a woman-rights advocate would never have placed the convenience of murders over the safety of women.
