CHIAROSCURO GROUP TO STATE ASSEMBLY: PROVE YOU CARE ABOUT WOMEN’S HEALTH; PASS CLINIC INSPECTION BILL
New York–March 25…New York State Assembly Members supporting a late term abortion expansion bill in the name of “women’s health,” should prove that they’re genuinely concerned about the health of women by passing legislation introduced by Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis (R-Staten Island) that would require regular Health Department inspections of New York State abortion clinics.
The New York Post reported last year that many New York clinics haven’t been inspected in more than a dozen years. Those that were inspected had serious sanitary violations.
“The health of women is being put at unnecessary risk every day and we ask that State Assembly Members — pro-choice and pro-life — act to address the issue,” said Chiaroscuro Group spokesman Greg Pfundstein. “Nail salons and restaurants are regularly inspected, but not women’s medical facilities? How is that possible?”
“We have raised a red flag over New York State,” Mr. Pfundstein continued. “We are alerting state legislators that a serious health oversight is occurring. But will the Assembly act on it?”
