Regulation of Health Care Facilities
 

Regulation of Health Care Facilities

Women deserve safe Health Care. The abortion industry has proven there is a
 need for oversight and regulation based upon recent findings. Abortions are
 surgery. All the blood that is being found during inspections proves this
 is a very invasive procedure. If this weren't a politicized issue, abortion
 clinics would have already been brought up to the standards of any surgical
 site. Where else would you find people fighting to have less safe
 environments for surgery ? Do people really go looking for the least safe
 environment to have surgery in order to save money and feel that it's ok to
 get infections from unsafe procedures ? Do people really want to impede a
 rescue unit from getting a gurney quickly to a woman in crisis where
 minutes may mean life or death ? Unfortunately, the demographics of the
 average woman to seek an abortion is a young woman in her twenties or so
 and too uninformed,not wise enough and feeling a sense of urgency in her
 crisis to do proper analysis of a doctor and his facility to truly
 understand her risk.
