MIAMI – On July 25th, Christian Family Coalition (CFC) Florida called on Florida Governor Rick Scott to investigate Planned Parenthood Florida. Days later he announced an investigation.
State health department inspectors are reporting their results and they found Planned Parenthood abortion clinics are illegally doing 2nd-trimester abortions. Those are the kinds of abortions that allow Planned Parenthood to gather the body parts of aborted babies for sale.
After inspecting all 16 Planned Parenthood clinics in Florida, the state Agency for Health Care Administration announced Wednesday that three have performed procedures outside the scope of their licenses and one has not kept proper records on disposing fetal remains.
“We will take immediate actions against these three facilities for performing second trimester abortions without a proper license,” AHCA spokesperson Shelisha Coleman said in a written statement Wednesday. “These facilities have been notified to immediately cease performing second trimester abortions.”
Clinics in St. Petersburg, Fort Myers and Naples were cited for performing abortions in the second trimester that they are not licensed to do. A Pembroke Pines clinic was cited for improper record-keeping.
Christian Family Coalition (CFC) Florida issued the following statement:
“Unfortunately, we are not surprised by the state’s findings, Planned Parenthood regularly works outside of the bounds of the law. While they claim to promote women’s health, they do exactly the opposite. They are the nation’s largest abortion provider, performing 300,000 abortions annually. That’s 20% of all abortions in America every year. They continuously victimize women and children and do not deserve a dime of taxpayer funds. We are glad they are being exposed and proud of the small part we are playing in this effort.”
