Americans United for Life is calling on states to regulate abortion clinics.
In June, the United States Supreme Court struck down Texas' law regulating abortion clinics – a law forcing the surgical abortuaries to abide by the same standards as other ambulatory surgical centers.
Kristi Hamrick of Americans United for Life told OneNewsNow that afterwards, the pro-life group conducted a survey and found more than 1,400 health and safety violations in abortion clinics over the last eight years nationwide.
In the Texas ruling, the high court insisted that it still needed more proof that the clinics are dangerous.
“[A]nd so this report from Americans United for Life is our answer to that,” Hamrick asserted. “Here is the proof – American abortion clinics are confirmed dangerous. We can see all kinds of health and safety violations, like failure to keep sanitary conditions, failure to have licensed personnel, and we can see that these clinics need to be both regulated and inspected regularly.”
The report is available to the public and lawmakers at Unsafe Report.org along with a petition:
“Americans United for Life is hoping people will sign the petition, calling on state legislators to both pass health and safety inspections and also to call for more inspections because we know – we can already see – that women are in danger. This is a public health crisis.”
Texas is not the only state that has had a blatant disregard for safe and sanitary abortion clinics.
Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell is serving two life prison terms for killing children born alive during abortions in a surgical clinic described as “squalid” – a facility that had not been inspected for about 18 years.
