Skip to comments.Planned Parenthood Sues to Stop Onerous Regulations [semi-satire]

On behalf of Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky, the ACLU has filed a lawsuit contesting these states imposition of unwanted regulations. ACLU spokesperson Bertram Petty described these states oversight as onerous, intrusive, and crippling. It is a blatant attempt to drive Planned Parenthood out of the medical marketplace.
The onerous regulations include requirements that facilities must meet minimum sanitation standards. The staff must be qualified to perform the procedures used, including how to handle emergency equipment. Patients must be monitored after anesthesia. Follow-up care for complications and infection control must be in place. Informed consent must be obtained and documented. To enforce these regulations, clinics are required to undergo an annual safety inspection by the Department of Health.
Petty objected that making continued state funding contingent on meeting arbitrary and meddlesome bureaucratic make-work rules violates civilized norms. In 1973 the US Supreme Court granted women the right to abort their unwanted offspring. States have no authority to interfere with this right. That they would do so under the pretense of protecting public health is reprehensible.
