The Planned Parenthood abortion business has purchased an abortion clinic in the state of South Carolina to be able to expand its abortion business there.

Planned Parenthood is the nation’s biggest abortion business, killing more than 300,000 unborn babies in abortions each and every year. The pr-abortion organization is funded in many states and federally with taxpayer dollars and rarely provides women with abortion alternatives or information about adoption.

The abortion giant has never before done abortions in the capital city of Charleston but purchasing this abortion clinic will have Planned Parenthood doing abortions there for the first time. Here is more about the purchase:

Planned Parenthood has bought the Charleston Women’s Medical Center in West Ashley, a lightning rod for controversy and protest in years past for being the only place in the area where a woman could seek an elective abortion.

Planned Parenthood, which owns two clinics in South Carolina, does not offer abortions at its current Charleston location. When the newly owned facility opens sometime in December, said Sarah Eldred, a spokeswoman for the organization, Planned Parenthood will begin offering elective abortions for the first time in the Charleston area.

The Charleston Women’s Medical Center gave notice it closed its doors Nov. 13 in Thursday’s Post and Courier. The facility, at 1312 Ashley River Road, is closed until Planned Parenthood re-opens the facility’s doors. Planned Parenthood’s current Charleston clinic, at 200 Rutledge Ave, will close.

SIGN THE PETITION! Congress Must De-Fund Planned Parenthood Immediately

The Charleston Women’s Medical Center has had multiply health and safety problems, according to inspections, just as has the Planned Parenthood abortion business. In 2015, according to state officials, the violations included improper infectious waste disposal practices.

Ironically, Planned Parenthood has worse violations. The state health agency issued an Administrative Order of Suspension for Planned Parenthood of South Atlantic in Columbia, S.C., due to violations of state laws and regulations. The 21 cited violations included: non-compliance with the Woman’s Right to Know Act, incomplete medical and employee records, expired medications, improper infectious waste disposal practices, and failure to report abortions to DHEC Vital Statistics in a timely manner. The DHEC order becomes final on September 28, 2015, and will result in closure of the facility unless review by the DHEC Board is requested or the facility meets the terms of the order.

Additionally, DHEC initiated enforcement action related to the management of infectious waste at all three facilities and against two companies that transport waste for Planned Parenthood of South Atlantic and Greenville Women’s Clinic: Stericycle and MedSharps. Cited violations included insufficient documentation of waste disposal practices, failure to follow disposal protocol, and improper disposal of products of conception. The abortion facilities and infectious waste transport companies had 15 days to meet with agency staff to discuss alleged violations, corrective actions, and possible civil penalties.

The Charleston Women’s Medical Center advertised abortions up to 16 weeks from the first day of the last menstrual period. The Charleston facility is affiliated with the Medical University of South Carolina which trains its future abortionist there.

Planned Parenthood has already been expanding its abortion business in the state.
