Abortuary inspection, fines lead to revocation of license

A Chicago-area late-term abortion clinic with a lengthy track record of violations wants its license back.

Most abortion clinics in Illinois aren't inspected, but that's not the case for Albany which is part of the Family Planning Association, because it is a late-term abortion facility.

Eric Scheidler of the Pro-Life Action League tells OneNewsNow that when the inspections were conducted, officials discovered a host of problems.

Scheidler, Eric (Pro-Life Action League)"[They found] unsafe equipment, they found fire hazards, they found a generator that was not installed correctly that could cause not only danger for people trying to flee in the case of a power outage but could actually kill a woman if she were on life support at the time under anesthesia for a late-term abortion."

According to the pro-life activist, several patients were rushed to emergency rooms by ambulance – and at least one patient death is known.

"So the state did step in and they assessed fines for, in the first case, $10,000," he explains, "because at one point the doctor left the abortion clinic with a patient who had to be transferred to a hospital leaving four other women behind, which is totally illegal. And then later they were fined another $40,000 for some of these infractions."

In contrast, the clinic's records showed no patients were transferred to hospitals.

The clinic's license was revoked two months ago. Owners have filed an appeal and the clinic continues to operate. There is no indication any of the serious problems have been corrected.
