As he takes the helm of state government, new Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf is promising a “government that works.”
In order to make good on that pledge, he will have to show his independence from the abortion industry.
It’s a tough task, given the fact that the nation’s largest abortion operation, Planned Parenthood, served on his transition team.
In addition, the man he nominated for Secretary of State, Pedro Cortes, has been sharply criticized for his failure to put abortionist Kermit Gosnell out of business when he had a chance. The grand jury report in the Gosnell murder case cited several instances in which the Department of State, which Cortes previously headed, failed to take action following revelations of trouble at Gosnell’s facility. Gosnell is now in prison after being convicted of the deaths of three full-term infants and in connection with the death of a female patient.
