South Carolina Gov. Issues Order That Could Close Two of the States Three Abortion Facilities

Gov. Nikki Haley announced late Friday afternoon that she had issued Administrative Order of Suspensions against Planned Parenthood of South Atlantic in Columbia and Greenville Women's Clinic in Greenville and assessed more than $10,000 in fines so far.

The state's Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) found 27 violations in those two offices—21 at Planned Parenthood alone.

Planned Parenthood was found to have violated the Woman's Right to Know Act five times, failed to prove that its staff was properly trained, kept expired medication on the premises, wrongly disposed of infectious material, and failed to report abortions to the state in a timely manner.

Greenville violated many of the same statues by failing to comply with the Woman's Right to Know Act, keeping incomplete records, and improperly disposing of infectious waste.

All three abortion facilities in the state were found to have violated state law in the way it disposed of aborted fetuses. State law requires that aborted babies must be buried or cremated. But inspectors found that the babies were blasted with steam for sterilization purposes then thrown away in the local landfill.

Planned Parenthood's Columbia location must pay a $7,000 fine, and Greenville must pay $2,750.

The third facility, Women's Medical Center in Charleston, was found to have had record keeping issues. It must submit a plan to correct reporting errors within 15 days.

Gov. Nikki Haley said the Center for Medical Progress' undercover "videos showing Planned Parenthood employees' horrifying disregard for human life" had "prompted" her to demand the investigation on August 18.

Investigations that took place between August 31 and September 4 "concluded that all three abortion clinics in the state are in fact in violation of South Carolina laws or regulations."

"This is completely unacceptable," she said.
