That’s Gosnell’s set up. We already know what Gosnell did was horrible and terrible, inhumane and disgusting. He broke laws, not just with abortion, but with vaccines for children, as well. (He didn’t keep them at the appropriate temperature or have them in a proper refrigeration system.) That is not a typical operating room for a clinic; that is too crammed, too dirty, and doesn’t have proper lighting.
However, Gosnell is not the same as all doctors who perform abortions.
Here’s some more clean - and less crowded - operating rooms where abortions are performed:

As you see, many reputable clinics keep it one bed/one patient to a room, makes sure to have large lamps, and has appropriate equipment. They also appear much cleaner and much more hospitable, don’t you think?
Stop trying to spread fear through cherry-picking and finding the worst to justify your argument. That’s like saying all pit bulls are violent, based on a select few. On the whole, clinics that offer abortion are safe, friendly, and clean.
Also, Lily Potter would have never wanted an abortion, because she was a financially well-off white woman starting a family in a happy marriage with a secure place at the top of wizarding society.
The question you should be asking is what if Merope Gaunt, an impoverished and uneducated single woman who escaped from a severely abusive family only to become pregnant with the unwanted child of a man who wanted nothing to do with her, had had access to an abortion and not had immense social pressure brainwashing her into carrying to term?
YOU GOTTA FIGHT………….FOR YOUR RIGHT…………….to have basic reproductive rights and control over your body there is no punchline here it is literally 2013 and white republican men are still breaking rules so that you can’t own your vagina.
♥ Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials;
♥ Margaret Atwood (especially the Mad Adam series & The Handmaid's Tale);
♥ The Hunger Games;
♥ The X-Files;
♥ (Mostly) everything Joss Whedon; and
♥ Unicorns, narwhals, time travel & zombies (not necessarily in that order).
Also, I'd rather pretend that season 6 of Lost never happened, and that Alias ended with the 2003 Superbowl episode.
