Planned Parenthood in Pennsylvania works to unseat cousin of Gosnell victim

Margo Davidson is a Democrat who currently serves in Pennsyvlania’s House of Representatives.  Her cousin, Semika Shaw, was one of infamous abortionist Kermit Gosnell’s victims.  Semika tragically died in 2000 when she was 22-years-old after Gosnell perforated her uterus and sent her home.  She had two young children. 

After Gosnell was arrested, Pennsylvania’s legislature took up a bill to increase regulations on abortion clinics so clinics like Gosnell’s wouldn’t be allowed in Pennsyvlania. 

Davidson voted in favor of the abortion regulations and spoke up in favor of them, sharing her personal story.  The video of her explaining her vote is below. 

Because of her desire not to see other women killed like her cousin was, Planned Parenthood in Pennsylvania wants Davidson gone.  They’ve endorsed one her opponents in the Democratic primary because he’s willing to vote “no” on commonsense laws to regulate abortion clinics.

At the Federalist, Brandon McGinley provides his thoughts on Planned Parenthood's endorsement.

It is hard to imagine a political maneuver that more clearly lays bare the chilling motivations at the heart of America’s abortion industry.

Planned Parenthood’s tendentious tagline is: “Care. No Matter What.” But we know, of course, that Planned Parenthood doesn’t care about the nascent lives its employees destroy by the hundreds of thousands. What has become clear as the Gosnell tragedy continues to unfold, though, is just how little Planned Parenthood cares about women.

Planned Parenthood doesn’t care about women like Semika Shaw. They are political inconveniences whose memory must be blotted out. And public figures who speak out for those victims—even their own family—are enemies who must be suppressed. Make no mistake about it: The campaign against Margo Davidson is a campaign to erase the memory of Kermit Gosnell from Pennsylvania politics.
