Alabama Abortionist Threatens to Keep Killing Babies Even if the Abortion Ban Goes Into Effect

An Alabama abortionist said she will continue aborting unborn babies even if her state’s new law banning abortions goes into effect.

To do otherwise would be “substandard medicine,” Yashica Robinson argued in an op-ed at CNN.

On Wednesday, Gov. Kay Ivey signed a law that would make aborting unborn babies a felony and put abortionists in prison for life for killing unborn babies. However, the abortion industry is expected to challenge the law before it goes into effect.

Robinson, an abortionist at the Alabama Women’s Center in Huntsville, said she will not stop aborting unborn babies even if it does. Her facility advertises abortions up to 21 weeks.

It “will not change my daily routine,” she wrote. “Just as I have for the last 15 years of my medical career, I will continue to deliver babies, give prenatal care — and provide abortions.”

Robinson said the punishments for abortionists are unjust.

“I am appalled that I could get a more severe penalty (up to 99 years in prison) for providing safe abortion care than someone who commits second-degree rape” Robinson wrote. “And I hate that I am being placed in the position of reassuring my patients that abortion is still legal today — and for the foreseeable future — despite the actions of politicians in Birmingham.”

Robinson claimed the law will force doctors like herself to “choose between what is ethically and medically appropriate care and breaking the law.”

But Robinson and her abortion facility have a long history of problems with ethics and patient care.

Several years ago, Robinson was charged with fraudulently billing Medicaid of more than $60,000. Her abortion facility also has been cited for numerous health and safety violations, including unsanitary conditions, expired drugs and an uncalibrated ultrasound machine. Inspectors reported that the abortion facility failed to record patient complications, and did not clean medical equipment between patients.

One report by state health inspectors noted that the facility misdiagnosed a woman’s pregnancy as as 20 weeks when the unborn baby really was 28 weeks (past viability). According to the report, the woman suffered serious complications from the abortion that required emergency hospitalization.

Abortion hurts women and kills children, and Alabama lawmakers are making a statement by banning abortions. These laws recognize that families deserve better than the so-called “care” that abortionists like Robinson say they provide.
