Governor Jan Brewer signed into law a bill that allows abortion clinic inspections without a warrant. No doubt the left will seize the opportunity to declare this common-sense safety measure a “war on women.” As expected:
Planned Parenthood was not happy. “HB2284 literally opens the door to harassment of women and their health care providers as these women are receiving abortion care,” Bryan Howard, president of Planned Parenthood Advocates of Arizona, told the AP. “We continue to believe that the legislation violates the rules governing abortion clinic inspections to which the state specifically agreed in 2010. It’s on that basis that we expect a legal challenge.”
Other healthcare providers are subject to unannounced inspections, but until now, abortion clinics were treated differently. One would think clinics set up for the purpose of killing unborn children would receive more scrutiny, not less.
