facts truth 620x300A new resource is available for abortion-minded women to investigate their local abortion clinics and to assist them should they decide to give birth to their babies.

The website CheckMyClinic.org was set up by the pro-life organization And Then There Were None, which was founded by former abortion clinic director turned pro-life activist Abby Johnson. (Editor's note: A free app is also available for use on mobile devices.)

ATTWN spokesperson Pamela Whitehead tells OneNewsNow public information on abortion clinics is usually difficult to find. Furthermore, typically what is found is incomplete or incorrect. The website and app, she says, were needed to correct erroneous information that was easily accessible.

"Users can click on a circle to view the inspection report for clinics in their area," Whitehead explains. "These inspection reports have been acquired through public records or a Freedom of Information Act request."

The state inspections are often the point of interest for those considering visiting the clinics.

"Most of these clinics have the same deficiencies," she says. "They include using expired medications or having staff performing duties outside their scope of practice. We also see the clinics not being sanitary. They're not properly sterilizing instruments that are used from woman to woman."

According to Whitehead, once women learn how out-of-step their local clinic is with accepted sanitary practices, they begin thinking twice about having an abortion. The app directs them to a resource tab containing information for pro-life pregnancy centers that will help them if they choose to deliver their babies.
