When there are disasters there are always great opportunities created. Case in point: We have abortion clinics that are so badly managed that even the abortionists refuse to ply their trade. The shuttering of the obstetrics unit at Maryland General Hospital due to so few babies being born, ironically because so many pregnancies are being terminated in our inner city, presents a perfect jobs opportunity. The state should just shut down Planned Parenthood and the other abortion providers and mandate that all abortions be performed by a licensed hospital facility, where women will be safe if their abortion is botched.
