surgical instruments 1A pro-life group is keeping a watch on a Pennsylvania abortion clinic that has failed to abide by state standards.

The Pennsylvania Health Department conducted an inspection of the Philadelphia Women's Center and, according to Maria Gallagher of the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation, the abortion clinic got an “F” because approximately half the performed on young girls, using the abortion drug RU 486, were illegal.

“They involved minors, girls under the age of 18,” Gallagher explains. “Under our Pennsylvania Abortion Control Act, there has to be parental consent of at least one parent before that chemical abortion can take place, and in this situation that permission was not obtained.”

Inspectors found other violations, too, such as the abortion clinic has failed to form safety committees among its staff to ensure infection control and patient safety.

“That is an indication that not all is well at that particular facility,” the pro-life activist concludes. “So we're going to have to keep an eye on this because we want to make sure our Abortion Control Act is followed.”
