HARTFORD, Conn., Dec 18 (LSN)  On Wednesday, Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal announced that HealthSouth Corp., a company that operates 225 surgery centers nationwide, is breaking the law by not providing abortions in its centers. Blumenthal is a well-known pro-abort who, in 1973, served as a clerk for Supreme Court Justice Harry A. Blackmun who at that time wrote the majority opinion in the Roe vs.  Wade.  A story by the Associated Press, circulated by Pro-Life E-news noted that Blumenthal threatened HealthSouth saying that the state could sue the company or force its operations in the state to close unless they allowed elective abortions. A memo from HealthSouth President James P. Bennett to surgical centers,  obtained by The Associated Press, said “HealthSouth Corporation does not endorse the elective termination of pregnancy in any of its facilities.” The company allows for non-elective abortions where the mother’s life is in danger and in cases of miscarriages.  For more on the story go to the Medical Post and see the Features section:
