Atlantic City Abortion Center Closes Down for Good After Health Violations

Atlantic City, NJ (LifeNews.com) -- The Alternatives abortion center in Atlantic City, New Jersey has closed down for good and opted to surrender its license to do abortions rather than correct the numerous health and safety problems state inspectors found. Officials closed the Alternatives abortion center in June after they found multiple health code violations.

They found the abortion center had problems with infection control issues, poor documentation and record-keeping and problems with the facility itself.

On Tuesday, a spokesman for the New Jersey Health Department confirmed that Alternatives would not correct the list of violations.

Atlantic City Councilman John Schultz owned the building Alternatives leased and he told the Press newspaper that all of the abortion center's equipment has been moved out of the facility and it is now up for lease.

"They moved out, everything is out of there," Schultz told the Press. "My lawyers just sent them a letter telling them they're like a month behind on their rent."

Alternatives owner Alan Kline has not spoken with the media since health inspectors found the problems, but Schultz indicated Kline told him last month they would not be corrected.

Kline also owns the Princeton Women's Center abortion business in Princeton.

Following the temporary closing of the Alternatives abortion center, women in the Atlantic City area have been traveling to Cherry Hill to get abortions.

Since the closing, women are making the trip north to the Philadelphia suburb, which has the next closest abortion center, the Cherry Hill Women's Center.

"We have seen a spike in patients traveling from the shore area," said Jennifer Moore Conrow, said earlier this month.

Elizabeth Barnes, the vice president of the Cherry Hill abortion business, told the Press that she was worried New Jersey residents would worry that all abortion centers in the state had health code problems because the Alternatives business and another in Englewood have been closed.

However, like Alternatives, the Cherry Hill Women's Center is one of several abortion facilities state health inspectors have not probed despite a state requirement to do so. Health officials say they don't have enough inspectors for cover all of the medical center in the state.

As a result, Cherry Hill Women's Center has not had a proper state health inspection since December 2004, and other abortion centers have gone longer.

The 2004 report found dirty, dust-covered poles used for IVs and "white scum" on them as well as not having proper anti-hypothermia drugs in place and improper infection control records.

The Cherry Hill Women's Center reportedly issued a corrective report to the state a month later fixing the problems.

“Atlantic City Abortion Center Closes Down for Good After Health Violations”

Did they decide that infanticide might not be in the best interests of public health? (This sounds like the EPA closing Auschwitz for violating emission standards.)

The center was always unhealthy for the unborn, but they only got concerned when it was unhealthy for the mothers.

One down. I wonder how easy it will be to lease out a place where hundreds of thousands if not millions of humans have had their lives snuffed out.

I hope that city concilman is looking for other employment soon. Can’t imagine having him represent my views.

Pro-Life groups have purchased a number of abandoned abortuaries and turned them into museums.

We live in a country where veterinary clinicsare more regulated than an abortion clinic.

The violations must have been really egregrious to shut this place down.

Praise the Lord.

Kline also owns the Princeton Women's Center abortion business in Princeton.

Wow, who new that you could create a franchise with the murder of children...

It sickens me that the same people who mourn the execution of convicted criminals and seek prosecution for those that defend themselves with force against criminals aggressively defend a woman's right to murder.

There are also a fair amount of Americans that call Muslims animals and savages for how they treat their people that break their laws but look what goes on in our country, day in and day out.... heck people like Kline make business out of it .

A city councilman owned the building, they had time to inspect that clinic and shut it down, but not the other clinics. Hmmmm. Given a politician is involved, things like this always make me wonder if there were other reasons besides health violations. Like, someone ticked off the wrong person.

Whatever the reason, just thank God another abortitorium is closed.

Actually, quite a few abortion clinics would be closed if properly inspected.

If the violations were that bad, how did they stay open all this time?
