Planned Parenthood Fined $25,000 For Running Filthy Abortion Clinic

A Planned Parenthood abortion clinic has been fined by the state of Ohio for running a filthy, unsanitary abortion clinic that puts the lives and health of women at risk.

Today, Ohio Right to Life obtained documentation of enforcement actions against three abortion facilities by the Ohio Department of Health. Among them is a $25,000 fine issued to Planned Parenthood of Bedford Heights due to severe violations of health and safety standards. Such violations include the facility’s failure to adhere to infection control policies, including exposed urine samples.

plannedparenthood121The violations include the state health inspector found include:

no experienced director of nursing on staff improper storage of eight containers of human tissue 3-month overdue follow-up documentation for hospitalized abortion patient with perforated uterus incomplete documentation for abortion patient who was hospitalized for bleeding use of expired and undocumented chemicals and equipment used on surgical suction hoses

Ohio Right to Life told LifeNews.com that further enforcement actions by the health department were taken against Northeast Ohio Women’s Center, which was denied a license to practice surgical abortions due to multiple health and safety violations, including failure to properly train staff, lack of a director of nursing, and expired medications and pregnancy tests.

“We’re deeply concerned, though admittedly unsurprised, that multiple abortion facilities are jeopardizing the lives and health of women,” said Mike Gonidakis, president of Ohio Right to Life. “The real war on women is being waged everyday in these unsafe and unsanitary abortion mills. These reports shock the conscience and reaffirm our resolve to protect life from Ohio’s abortion industry.”

This week, ODH also issued an administrative order to close the last remaining abortion facility in Toledo. Capital Care Network of Toledo (CCN) was unable to secure a transfer agreement with any Toledo-area hospital which caused health officials to begin the closure process last year. CCN attempted to enter into a transfer agreement with an out-of-state hospital at the University of Michigan. Because the hospital is located 52 miles away from CCN, the Department of Health ruled that it does not meet health and safety standards.

“Without Capital Care Network, life in Toledo will be safer for women and children” said Gonidakis. “This week, our government assured all of us that women’s health and patient safety is priority number one. It is deeply troubling that some people are advocating for this illegal operation to remain open, putting women’s lives at risk.”

Some would say that by definition, an “Abortion Clinic” is already a ‘filthy place’ unless it is truly to protect the life of the mother, and not used as a handy form of contraception.

An abortion done to truly protect the life of the mother would be done at hospital not some dive of a clinic. More than likely the mother would have to stay overnight for observation in hospital after undergoing an abortion of that nature.

Abortion remains the greatest evil in this nation. Legalized murder perpetuated by butchers in foul conditions gives lie to the notion that abortion facilities are safe and medically responsible. They are, without exception, dangerous mills run as larcenous sources of illicit wealth. Abortion is a high profit industry run without medical supervision or health standards. No facility for the murder of babies is operated other than with the same calloused, foul practices required to justify this slaughter of innocents.

Precisely. Every Planned Parenthood Abortion Clinic is filthy. This one was just grossly unsanitary as well.

Doesn't this interfere with a woman's right to choose an infection.

” No facility for the murder of babies is operated other than with the same calloused, foul practices required to justify this slaughter of innocents.”....

The darkness surrounding any abortion clinic breeds lack of care, cleanliness, ect....To me it is a spiritual sickness inside each individual who participates and nothing clean or healthy or good can come from it.....

you want a rock-solid proof the left has zero desire to have abortion be rare?

if they did, they’d go after abortion exactly like they’ve done with smoking.

negative social stigma. psa’s on health danger. abortion kills a person. massive taxes to keep people from buying so much. huge efforts to stop young people doing it. trying to prevent any neagtive associated behaviors with it.

instead at every point i mentioned, they are doing the exact opposite.

I love these laws requiring the abortion mills to conform to health standards. Because almost none of them do, and the greedy cash cow hustlers that run them like Planned Parenthood aren’t willing to pony up the money to match their supposed convictions.

Best part is the liberals can make no argument. They are the ones that push high quality health care, for women, and supposedly hate greedy money grubbers that exploit others to enrich themselves, especially women. That and they demanded we needed abortion centers to get it away from the back alley, and what they came up with is decidedly worse than the back alley.

Check and mate.

My father's barbershop had stricter hygienic standards than most abortion mills, and he was regularly inspected to make sure he complied.
