2011 Pennsylvania Abortion Regs Proved Costly to Many Facilities

NPR: Pennsylvania Tightens Abortion Rules Following Clinic Deaths, by Jeff Brady:

A Philadelphia doctor who performed abortions is on trial for murder. Kermit Gosnell, 72, is accused in the deaths of a female patient and seven babies who the prosecutor says were born alive. District Attorney R. Seth Williams laid out the case in disturbing detail in a grand jury report last year. . . . 

In 2011, the Gosnell case was mentioned frequently as Pennsylvania's General Assembly passed a law that put stricter requirements on abortion clinics. Now most clinics in the state are held to the same standards as outpatient surgery centers. . . .
