Inspection Reports Reveal Dozens of Health and Safety Violations Incurred by Abortion Chain, Whole Woman's Health

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — The Washington Free Beacon reported this morning that Whole Woman’s Health (WWH), the abortion chain that hopes to open a new abortion facility in South Bend, has had multiple health and safety violations at their Texas abortion facilities from 2011 to 2017.

Detailed inspection reports from the Texas Department of State Health Services show widespread violations of Texas health codes, including failure to properly disinfect and sterilize equipment and failure to ensure that staff was properly trained in the sterilization of surgical instruments.

In 2011, a WWH facility in Beaumont, Texas did not have a registered nurse on staff, as required by Texas law. Other concerns cited in the reports referenced the maintenance of medical equipment, general disrepair of the facilities, and expired medications and supplies.

In an Austin, Texas facility, investigators found a missing supply of fentanyl, the strong narcotic drug that has recently been associated with hundreds of overdose deaths. 

“It is deeply concerning to see an out-of-state chain trying to come into South Bend that has demonstrated a complete disregard for the health and safety of the women it claims to serve,” noted Tom Gill, President of St. Joseph County Right to Life. “The last abortion facility here lost its license for similar violations of the Indiana State Department of Health codes. We certainly hope that this will raise a red flag for everyone in this community and that people here will continue to speak out against this unneeded abortion center.”
