Anti-abortion group pushes clinic inspection law

PHOENIX (AP) - A powerful anti-abortion group is pushing for last-minute legislation to allow unannounced inspections at abortion clinics.

Cathi Herrod of the Center for Arizona Policy said Thursday that all other medical facilities are subject to such inspections and abortion clinics should be no different. She wants a bill passed this month.

She says an undercover video showing a doctor and counselor at a Phoenix abortion clinic discussing the possibility that some aborted fetuses may show life after being removed from a woman's body and the recent conviction of a Philadelphia abortion clinic doctor on murder charges show the need.

Planned Parenthood Arizona's president said clinics are already inspected and a new proposal in the waning days of the legislative session is a classic Herrod tactic to avoid public scrutiny.
