"Gov. Bobby Jindal signed the bill into law Wednesday that gives the head of the Department of Health and Hospitals the ability to quickly suspend a license if he decides there is an immediate health or safety threat at one of a handful of clinics in the state that provide abortions.
"Parks Rep. Fred Mills, sponsor of the new law, has said the change puts the health secretary's authority over outpatient abortion clinics in line with the authority he has over other kinds of health care facilities, like substance abuse and adult day care facilities."
A worrisome thing for abortion clinics: having to abide by the same regulations that actual health care facilities do.
"MONTGOMERY, Alabama, June 11, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com )— The Montgomery, Alabama location for the Summit Medical Centers chain of abortion mills has closed after the Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) produced a 68-page long document detailing numerous violations of state law and of medical standards.
"The center had been operating on a probationary license since October 2006 due to the legal and health deficiencies found on a 2006 survey.
"Among medical deficiencies, the ADPH document notes failure to inspect medical equipment annually, failure to wash hands and medical equipment in accord with the guidelines of the Center for Disease Control, failure to provide for infection control in the recovery room, failure to provide a sufficient number of staff to care for patients in the recovery room, failure to keep adequate medical records, and failure to ensure the availability of emergency drugs and oxygen for use by authorized employees.
"Furthermore, expired medications were not removed from the clinic, calls from patients with potential medical conditions were not returned in a timely fashion, and medical waste was not disposed of correctly but instead given to normal trash collectors.
"Such gross negligence resembles the unsanitary conditions that have been found in other abortion mills, such as the New Jersey abortion center where forceps crusted with “blood-like residue” were found and rusted crochet hooks were used to remove IUDs. Similarly unsanitary disposal of medical waste has been exposed in a Philadelphia abortuary."
