"MIAMI (AP) -- Three of the 16 Planned Parenthood facilities inspected in Florida last week were performing procedures beyond their licensing authority, and one facility was not keeping proper logs relating to fetal remains, officials announced Wednesday.

The Agency for Health Care Administration released a report saying clinics in St. Petersburg, Fort Myers and Naples were performing second-trimester abortions when they were only licensed to perform first-trimester abortions. The report also found that a Pembroke Pines clinic was not following its own procedures for the labeling and dating of the disposal of fetal remains."


Please read the entire article, I realize there's a lot of emotions that come up because of this particular subject…
However being that these are some of the first investigations and they're already finding some troubling information it looks like that maybe all this outrage wasn't unwarranted at least at some level.

The investigation investigations just beginning and I'm curious to find out just what we will find out on a nation wide scale

From your source.


Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates Executive Director Laura Goodhue said in a prepared statement Wednesday night that the licensing violations resulted from the AHCA changing its definitions of gestational periods and that the centers were operating in compliance with Florida law.

“In the health centers AHCA reported on we only perform first trimester abortions, which we measure according to accepted medical guidelines and in accordance with Florida regulations as up to 13 weeks and six days from a woman's last menstrual cycle,” Goodhue said in the release. “This, as defined by rules, is still the first trimester. AHCA has never before indicated any different interpretation of this — including at inspections performed as recently as two weeks ago. AHCA's new interpretation is grossly inconsistent with years of previous inspections and outside of both the regulations and accepted medical standards.”

Goodhue previously noted that Florida doesn't even have a tissue donation program.

But wouldn't it be fair to say that if the AHCA makes such a change, that the liability absolutely falls on any company providing healthcare to keep up with the changes? Logic dictates that it does, assuming that the change was made readily available for all healthcare-providing companies.

Exactly thank you for answering


Businesses don't get to not comply just because changes are made

Well, if they change the rules, of course they're going to me in violation... I have read that the second trimester starts at 13 weeks, 13 weeks and a number of days or 14 weeks...

MITM, Why does the title say FOUR, when the article says three? Where did you get 4?

Three were cited for violating the 1st-term-only authorization, but a fourth was caught not keeping appropriate records concerning fetal remains. It's in the story...and in his quote used on the OP.

Any time regulations are changed you have a certain amount of time to comply then they are in violation

I'd say any business that is investigated, violations will be found.

When you look for violations, you find violations.

FACTS needed. What exactly are the violations? Is it one person, or a confirmed policy'? Is it a minor violation that can be corrected by a policy change, etc.

Did you read the source or??????

When asked whether the inspections were politically motivated, he said, “The videos are pretty disturbing. So the right thing to do is to let the public know we are responding by doing an investigation to make sure they are complying with the law. It's against the law to sell body parts.”

And how better to hide it than altering paperwork…

Just a general opinion.

FIRST reports often change.

I believe the infraction would be a policy violation, because Planned Parenthood was NOT in violation of State Law. If the overseeing body has different regulation than the state laws dictate, you can bet there's gonna be discrepancies.

I'm still finding this witch hunt on a service that helps so many women and families disgusting.

That's all I have to say.

Me too.

It's campaign time. The GOP can't use gay marriage, so they fall back on controlling vaginas.

Yes, I've read several sites now.

Other then one person/facility lousy at paperwork, there is nothing at this time, but questioning a procedural change.

I'm now more interested in how/who changed regulations and why it was not known. Or so it seems at this time.

So they didn't warrant an investigation?

The are finding things so apparently it's not totally unwarranted

Regardless of your thoughts on PP it doesn't mean they are above regulations.

People can be as pissed as they want but if they are finding issues then shouldn't you be happy they are being brought under proper procedure?

You should be happy they are doing more to protect those women you were talking about shouldn't you?
