Arizona Just Authorized Surprise Inspections At Abortion Clinics

"Arizona Just Authorized Surprise Inspections At Abortion Clinics"

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) approved a measure on Tuesday evening that will allow the state to conduct surprise inspections of abortion facilities without first obtaining a warrant. The new law is almost certain to provoke a lawsuit, since a federal appeals court has previously maintained that Arizona needs to get a warrant before searching abortion clinics.

The governor did not issue any statement regarding her approval of House Bill 2284, but a spokesperson for her office explained that “this legislation will ensure that the Arizona Department of Health Services has the authority to appropriately protect the health and safety of all patients.”

Reproductive rights groups, on the other hand, say this is just another method of allowing harassment against abortion providers. They point out that the anti-choice community successfully uses the regulatory system as a cudgel — enacting dozens of unnecessary restrictions on abortion care, triggering state inspections of clinics, drowning clinic employees in paperwork, and ultimately forcing providers out of business.

“We’re not surprised that Governor Brewer signed this bill,” Bryan Howard, president of Planned Parenthood Advocates of Arizona, said in a statement. “She has been hostile to women’s health care, including abortion and family planning, since the day she took office.”

According to the Guttmacher Institute, ten other states also allow surprise clinic inspections. This policy fits into a larger strategy to limit access to reproductive health clinics. Although these tactics are typically framed in terms of “women’s safety,” they’re actually intended to make it too difficult to provide abortion care. In fact, abortion is already one of the safest medical procedures in the country, and the clinics that perform these procedures are already highly regulated.

HB 2284 was spearheaded by the right-wing group Center for Arizona Policy, the same group that was behind the state’s controversial “right to discriminate” measure earlier this year. The legislature took up HB 2284 just one day after Brewer vetoed the anti-LGBT bill.

Four years ago, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals determined that snap inspections at abortion clinics put women’s privacy at risk, and overruled a similar measure that Arizona enacted back in 1999. But the Center for American Policy maintains that this time will be different. Now that Arizona has enacted some of the most restrictive abortion laws in the country, the group hopes that the court won’t see surprise clinic inspections as such a threat to reproductive rights.

The state’s Democratic lawmakers see through that strategy. “This bill simply opens the door for abuse and does nothing to keep women safe,” Sen. Olivia Cajero Bedford (D) pointed out during last week’s debate on the Senate floor. “In fact, it’s just another harassment tool the supporters are pushing to force a lawsuit.”

*rubs temples*  These laws are so frustrating.  The worst part is they sound reasonable to people who don't know much about abortion and the tactics that conservatives have been using to chip away at reproductive rights.  They're out in full force trying to pass ANYTHING and everything to get more restrictions on the books.  It's hard to keep up and it's stretching the resources of pro-choice advocates trying to overturn all this stuff.  They're always stuck just trying to undo some of the damage.

I hope these laws encourage the clinics to be more safe and clean.

Most All clinics are already heavily regulated.  They're often part of a membership organizations that hold them to very high standards, so the clinics get the benefit of the membership organizations giving out referrals for those locations.  They have to reflect positively on the organization or they lose their membership status.

I'll just be glad when that ugly wombat of a woman finally jumps on her broom and flies away.

They really want to go back to the days of coat hanger abortions. It's crazy how these ppl are so "pro life" but will vote with a quickness to cut social programs.

Much like voting rights restrictions, they're trying to solve a problem that doesn't exist because they want to keep folks from exercising their constitutional rights. 

Ladybird, that's why I never, ever call them "pro-life". I call them what they actually are which is anti-choice.

They've shifted from trying to ban it (because it's unconstitutional) to making it "safer" when it's already safer than giving birth while activity legislating against prenatal care, food stamps, and access to maternity supplies.  There are things strongly correlated with reducing the number of abortion like strong sex education, easier access to birth control, and stronger social programs for families.  Strange how their platform opposes these things.  This is less about safety for women and more about shaming women having sex.
