The lengthy expose about the horrendous late-term abortion practice of Kermit Gosnell in Philadelphia sent shock waves throughout the nation. The most egregious discovery was the lack of inspection of abortion clinics by the Department of Health (DOH) dating back to the 1970s.
The DOH resumed inspecting clinics last year and uncovered two more run by Soleiman Soli that needed to be closed down. According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, “Pennsylvania’s failure to oversee abortion clinics, which allowed a West Philadelphia facility to operate for decades with grave deficiencies, also enabled two other Philadelphia-area clinics to endanger patients and ignore rules.” Soli’s clinics had NEVER been inspected before late 2010.
At Soli’s clinics, there was a “lack of resuscitation equipment and no documentation of patients’ vital signs, such as blood pressure, before or after care,” according to DOH officials. Inspectors also said “Medications and syringes — uncovered and uncapped — were kept directly on the floor under a cabinet in the exam room to hide them from potential burglars…”
The 83-year-old Soli promptly closed his clinics and retired. He was not disciplined but records show Soli has been sued for malpractice at least six times, including one case that was settled for $35 million.
Here is Soli’s recorded farewell message following the clinic closures: “The doctor has decided to spend more time with his family. He would like to thank everyone who has come to the office. It has been a joy and a wonderful experience for him.” Not so joyous and wonderful for the babies he killed and the women he injured.
