Apparently having “former abortion clinic owner” on your resume isn’t a good thing in the state of Pennsylvania.

Allyson Schwartz once ran an abortion business and told Pennsylvania voters in April to “get over it” and they responded by telling her to get over her desire to become Pennsylvania’s next governor. Schwaallysonschwartzrtz lost her primary to wealthy businessman Tom Wolf (D), who will face pro-life Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett (R) in the fall.

Not only did Schwartz lose but she lost handily. Wolf, who also supports abortion, was easily leading Schwartz by 54 percent to 23 percent, with two other candidates splittling the remainder of the vote.

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.

While running the abortion business, she may have referred women to gruesome late-term abortionist Kermi Gosnell, but repeatedly refused to say.



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