So we have physicians — from schools that lack proper medical tools — conducting these grisly procedures.  That sounds safe.  Furthermore, you can’t really call ELAM a medical school since it’s tinged with communist philosophy.  As Marc Lacey of the New York Times wrote back in 2006:

Cuban-trained doctors must be able not only to diagnose an ulcer and treat hypertension but also to expound on the principles put forward by “el comandante.”

It was President Castro himself who in the late 1990s came up with the idea for this place, which gives potential doctors from throughout the Americas and Africa not just the A B C’s of medicine but also the basic philosophy behind offering good health care to the struggling masses.

The Cuban government offers full scholarships to poor students from abroad, and many, including 90 or so Americans, have jumped at the chance of a free medical education, even with a bit of Communist theory thrown in.

Landau, who’s cited towards the end of the ’07 Times article, admitted that Cuba “is a highly flawed system…after six years here I could go on and on regarding things that I think should be different.” She went on to praise Michael Moore’s Sicko, which was released at the time, as a film that would help start discussions about reforming American health care. In the meantime, she’ll abort some babies.

We've all said it before: there are many more Gosnell's out there. You can't evolve into the culture of death we have and not have them. I can only hope she doesn't reproduce herself. We don't need any more nihilists.

There was a certain political group sometime back that thought you could do anything to anyone if you could provide medical cover. That mindset is with us still.

Another plug for And Then There Were None, which helps people in the abortion industry to get out.

Two separate issues here. One is the abortion procedure. The other is the issue of foreign medical graduates. These are totally distinct.

There are many fine graduates from foreign medical schools here in the US. Ask why that is, why do we not produce enough out of our own schools? That is a legitimate issue yet if you dig hard enough you will find that a doc from India, wherever are the elite and US policy is to bring them here. I know and work with these people. No problem there.

So Cubans, whatever the issues with the government, are not less stupid that you. Some of them want to come here. That in itself should not be a barrier. We ought to encourage people with ability.. Maybe this person was not the best choice.

I have worked with very skilled Cuban Americans. This has nothing to do with the abortion issue. Kermit Gosnill is 100% American.

This is pathetic. Nobody is having a go at Cubans here, just at the repulsive Cuban regime. Landau isn't a Cuban who did the best she could with what was available. She's an American, who went to Cuba, to learn how to kill people.

Communists weren't keen on abortion, once it dawned on them that abortion killed future communists, so why is Havana training American abortionists, do you think?

Well Carman, if it's "just like a flu shot" why don't you do the whole world a favor and roll up your sleeve and let another Cuban trained "doctor" give you an adult-sized dose of it. After all you are just an "over-sized" bunch of cells.

Ah, yes. Life unworthy of life. Not the babies, mind you. The abortionists.

Well, if you're assuming the baby is a hostile virus then yeah, she's not far off. It does beg the question though how the hell these people sleep at night.
