New York abortion clinics rarely inspected, Post finds

Catholic World News - April 07, 2014

Abortion clinics in New York are rarely inspected by public-health officials, the New York Post reports.

Of the 25 abortion clinics listed by the public-health department, eight were never inspected between 2000 and 2013. Only 45 inspections were performed for all 25 clinics during that 12-year period, and only once did inspectors take action against the clinic for violating health regulations.

By contast, the Post notes, under state law, tanning salons in New York must be inspected at least once every other year.
