I simplified this a fair amount due to it being morning and me being a bit tired. But I would really like this argument to die, please. (x-post of my comment on the Slot article.)

ETA: I was really worried that upholding TRAP laws would actually create MORE Kermit Gosnells than it would stop. There are people out there who prey on desperate folks, and they could have seen the closing of legitimate abortion clinics as a sign they should open up their own ‘clinics’ and take advantage of women desperately needing abortion services. So the people who cite the Gosnell case as a reason for ‘protecting’ women risked re-creating the same problem.
