Abortion Information

Abortion clinics


These standards include that abortion doctors have admitting privileges to local hospitals, that the clinics have halls and corridors wide enough to accommodate a gurney in case of complications, that a certain number of soap dispensers be available and that surgical equipment used in abortions be sanitized. These are basic standards required even for veterinary clinics.Womenâs groups should not only support those standards, but they should insist on them.By the way, when the law in Texas was enacted, half of the abortion clinics in Texas shut down because they could not comply with those basic requirements.
