Vera-Kristin-choices-2012-300x225The state Health Department is failing to inspect many of New York’s abortion clinics – with some facilities escaping scrutiny for more than a decade, bombshell documents obtained by The Post reveal….

Eight of the 25 clinics were never inspected over the 2000-12 span, five were inspected just once, and eight were inspected only twice or three times – meaning once every four or six years.

A total of just 45 inspections were conducted at all 25 facilities during the 12-year period.

By comparison, city eateries are inspected every year and graded, while a new law requires tanning salons to undergo inspections at least once every other year….

[Kermit] Gosnell’s [Pennsylvania] clinic hadn’t been checked for 15 years before inspectors raided his facility in an unrelated prescription investigation and stumbled upon a house of horrors.

“New York has one of the highest abortion rates in the country. More oversight is needed. Abortion clinics are as much a public concern as tanning salons. There should be regular inspections of all licensed abortion clinics,” [Chiaroscuro Foundation executive director Greg] Pfundstein said.
