Web Site Exposes Health Code Violations at Abortion Clinics

A new web site will inform women considering abortions of medical malpractice and health code violations at abortion centers across the country. The new online database, available at www.abortionsafety.com, provides abortion-minded women with the latest information on health violations and malpractice lawsuits, ensuring that they make more informed decisions, according to project oranizer Kelsey Hazzard of Secular Pro-Life.

The site was inspired in part by the Chicago Method, a woman-centered sidewalk counseling approach that the Pro-Life Action League has successfully employed for years.  The key difference, Hazzard said, is that AbortionSafety.com allows women to obtain accurate abortion information from the comfort of their own homes, thus giving them more time to reconsider their decision to have an abortion.

“Now, we don’t have to wait until women are already at the sidewalk to give them this information,” she said.  “They’ll have it as soon as they do a Google search for abortion centers in their area.”

Numerous pro-life leaders—including Students for Life of America’s Kristan Hawkins and Pro-Life Action League’s Eric Scheidler—have applauded the project.

Hazzard says that pro-life advocates have, for months, combed through local courthouses for medical malpractice documents.  Currently, AbortionSafety.com provides information about abortion centers in 22 states, and organizers plan to add more data soon.  The site also includes information on abortion risks and alternatives.

Secular Pro-Life hopes that the project will create common ground in the abortion debate. Hazzard cited a series of articles that pro-choice author William Saletan wrote last year, in which he urged the abortion rights movement to combat modern-day “back-alley” abortion facilities.
“We believe this is something pro-lifers and pro-choicers can both get behind,” she concluded.
This is the third web site set up thirs year to expose the abortion industry in an effort to shut down abortion facilities and stop abrotion practitioners.

A new web site operated by Operation Rescue and Pro-Life Nation has cataloged more than 1,000 documents showing abuses by abortion practitioners. bortionDocs.org has passed 1,000 document uploads and is one of the most up-to-date database of existing abortion businesses and abortion practitioners in the United States that contains civil and criminal court records, disciplinary documents, health department inspection reports, and other documents that paint a picture of rampant abortion abuses throughout the country.

Launching in January, a new web site, AbortionWiki.org, will serve as a comprehensive and impartial resource of all information relevant to beginning and end of life issues such as abortion, euthanasia and stem cell research.
