To Enforce or Not to Enforce, That Is the Question
Maryland is one of the most abortion-friendly states in the union, but it now has a problem. Seems notorious late-term abortionist Leroy Carhart moved there a couple of years ago, and has taken to ignoring state laws on disposal of medical waste and patient record privacy. According to LifeNews:
Between August, 2011, and May, 2012, local pro-life advocates working in conjunction with Operation Rescue inspected trash generated by Germantown Reproductive Health Services. A report OR released today indicated the trash included documents containing private patient information, including photocopies of patient drivers licenses, information about birth control prescriptions, and detailed information about a 15 week abortion for which the patient was charged $2,200.
The trash also contained bloody refuse including bloody sanitary napkins and blue pads, some of which contained blood clots and possible human fetal remains. And it contained partially-used bottles of IV drugs that are classified as controlled substances and other drugs.
“In light of new clinic regulations that are set to go into effect on July 23, we are asking the Maryland Board of Physicians and the Department of Health to fully investigate Carhart’s dumping practices at Germantown Reproductive Health Services and take whatever disciplinary action is necessary to protect the public,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue and Pro-life Nation.
Maryland now faces this dilemma: ignore Carhart’s dumping and proclaim state law meaningless, or enforce the law at the behest of beyond-the-pale Operation Rescue.
So which is more likely to happen first: the latter, or me winning the Powerball lottery without buying a ticket?
