More media coverage today of the oversight of abortion clinics—or lack of it—in Illinois: the Peoria Journal Star reports on the violations found at National Health Care Services.
Before last year’s inspection sweep of Illinois’ nine pregnancy termination special centers (PTSCs), the abortuary hadn’t been inspected in 15 years. State investigators found serious problems there, including shoddy record keeping.
The Journal Star reports that all the violations were corrected by October, at a cost of nearly $10,000.
But what remains to be seen—and is not discussed in today’s story—is whether the state will continue to monitor conditions at the PTSCs, or simply revert to the status quo of decades past when inspections were not done.
