Congressional committees launch nationwide probe of shoddy abortion clinics


wrote the other day that aside from a U.S. Senate resolution introduced May 6 to “investigate and correct abusive, unsanitary, and illegal abortion practices” in the wake of the Kermit Gosnell scandal, other efforts were in the works to reign in dangerous abortion clinics and abortionists nationwide.

Two of those efforts were revealed today.Susan B. Anthony List writes:

In the wake of the Kermit Gosnell trial, the House Energy and Commerce Committee, chaired by Congressman Fred Upton (R-MI), announced today that they have sent a letter to public health officials in each state demanding answers as to how they regulate abortion facilities.

Yesterday the House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Congressman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), sent a similar letter to state attorneys general.

Congressman Trent Franks (R-AZ), Civil Justice Subcommittee Chairman, joined in calling for responses to questions about endorsement of late term abortion restrictions and “born alive” statutes.

SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser praised these efforts and further called for Congress to take action to address the inhumanity revealed in the late-term abortion industry.

The SBA List has compiled an initial fact sheet on abortion industry negligence and brutality occurring nationwide.
