ABORTION CLINIC SAFETY
A Florida abortion clinic had its license suspended this past weekend -- after two women who had undergone procedures at the clinic were hospitalized this year. I spoke with the CEO of Reprotection -- the organization that led the investigation into this clinic. Missy Martinez-Stone says some clinics here in the U-S don't meet established medical or operational standards -- and it's putting women's lives at risk. Something as basic as a transfer agreement -- between a hospital and a clinic -- that should outline say how, when, and what's needed to move a patient into hospital care in the event of a medical emergency -- is too often missing...
SE: we thought we needed to define what a transfer agreement is. If there's a better way, more succinct, pls feel free to change it. Thank you!

Chyron 1: INVESTIGATION SHUTS DOWN FL ABORTION CLINIC

Missy, you spearheaded the investigation that closed an abortion clinic in Florida this week. What did your investigation find?
Well, we were contacted by Emerald Coast Coalition for life, they had identified that the abortion facility in Pensacola American Family Planning
had lied on their transfer agreement, saying they had a transfer agreement with Baptist Health Hospital, when in fact that transfer agreement did not exist. And so when they applied for licensed by the state to be an abortion facility, that information was fraudulent.
Emergency order that shut the clinic down (p6 onward has examples of malpractice. You could scroll through from the subheading "Facts Justifying Emergency Action" to pg 12 (e.g.), and highlight... h: "failure to timely report and implement its transfer procedures where a surgical procedure resulted in complications requiring hospitalization."
And in fact, there was an absence of emergency procedures and protocols all together.
your organization operates nationally. How widespread Do you think this
