Stand With Us

I stand with Woman’s Health Comes First and demand that the Illinois Department of Public Health exercise their authority to clean up the deplorable health and sanitary conditions within woman’s clinics.

An investigation into the health and sanitary conditions of women’s abortion clinics revealed a severe pattern of disregard for basic medical and sanitation practices among licensed women’s clinics. Despite a pattern of serious health violations and medical malpractice lawsuits, the Illinois Department of Public Health fails to conduct regular health and sanitary inspections.

Today, 63% of licensed Illinois women’s clinics have not received a health and sanitary inspection in between two and three-and-a-half-years. The failure of the Department of Public Health to conduct regular health and sanitary inspections leaves women open to the prospect of unsterile surgical tools, dirty operating rooms, incomplete medical attention, infections, and possibly more deaths.

Illinois Right to Life researchers requested a copy of the Illinois Department of Public Health’s sanitary inspection policy for licensed women’s clinics. No such policy exists.
