Abortion Clinic Shut Down

Jun 13, 2017

An abortion clinic in Pennsylvania was shut down after the state’s Department of Health found “serious deficiencies and violations.” The Hillcrest Women’s Medical Center had four previous violations of state health laws in the last six years. Three Republican lawmakers asked the Department of Health why the clinic’s license had not be revoked. In February, the clinic had no registered nurse on staff and had not conducted back ground checks on eight staff members. Additionally, the clinic could not show that the abortionist was a board eligible OB/GYN. A June inspection found expired medical supplies. According to the Department of Health, the clinic will remain closed “until such time that it can demonstrate it is safe for women to receive care.”
