Letter about abortion...


Mon, Apr 6th, 2015
Posted in Spring Valley Letter to the Editor

To the Editor,

Did you know that abortion facilities in Minn. are unlicensed and uninspected? It’s true. The Department of Health has no authority over abortion centers. Is it right that these places, which perform one of the most common surgical procedures in the state (some years abortion is the most common procedure), keep their doors closed to health inspectors? It raises the question: What do they have to hide?

Hopefully nothing - but there is no way to know. Without inspections, the state cannot ensure that the five surgical abortion facilities, which perform 99 percent of the nearly 10,000 abortions each year, are safe for women. Many health dangers have been uncovered at unlicensed abortion facilities in cities outside Minn. in recent years. Women have been severely injured, and some have died. This is unacceptable - and unnecessary.

Shouldn’t women’s safety be more important than the demands of abortion providers that their businesses be kept secret? New legislation - H.F. 606/ S.F. 616 - calls for abortion facilities to be licensed and allowed to be inspected by the Minnesota Department of Health, just as other outpatient surgical centers are. Please urge our state lawmakers to ensure women’s safety by passing this legislation. Contact your legislators at House of Representatives, Representative Greg Davids, State Office Building, St. Paul, MN 55155. Phone (651) 296-9278 or rep.greg.davids@house.mn Minnesota State Senate, Senator Jeremy Miller, State Capitol, S1. Paul, MN 55155. Phone (651) 296-5649, sen.jeremy.miller@senate.mn Protect WOMEN and LIFE!

Sincerely,

Eleanore Jones

Spring Valley, Minn.
