Want to know which candidate for governor Pennsylvania Democrats prefer? According to a new survey released today, the answer is a former owner of an abortion clinic.

Pennsylvania gubernatorial candidate Allyson Schwartz refuses to say if, when she ran an abortion business in the state, she would refer women to Kermit Gosnell’s infamous abortion facility. But she is leading all Democratic candidates for governor.

From a poll:

Things are pretty wide open when it comes to the Democratic primary for Governor. The leader is undecided, with 27% of voters unsure on who they want the nominee to be. Allyson Schwartz gets 21% to 17% for Jack Wagner, 10% for Rob McCord, 9% for Katie McGinty, 8% for John Hanger, 4% for Ed Pawlowski, and 2% each for Tom Wolf, JoEllen Litz, and Max Myers. With support split so many ways and so many voters undecided even someone like Wolf could come back to win given how important money and the ability to communicate statewide will be.



Schwartz, if she becomes the nominee, would face pro-life Governor Tom Corbett who, ironically, signed the law to stop any further Gosnell-type abortion clinics from operating and is holding the abortion industry accountable for following state law. Pennsylvania long looked the other way for decades as Kermit Gosnell killed babies in brutal abortion procedures that looked more like infanticides and ran a disgustingly dilapidated abortion clinic.

Schwartz co-founded and served as the Executive Director of an abortion facility in Philadelphia for 13 years. The facility performed about 1,500 abortions in its final year of operation before declaring bankruptcy.

Other area abortion clinics frequently referred women to Gosnell’s Philadelphia abortion clinic for abortions later than they would do. But the gubernatorial hopeful has been silent on whether hers did.
