AUL’s public records request, under the Rhode Island Access to Public Records Act, Rhode Island Gen. Laws §38-2-1 et seq., to the Rhode Island Department of Health revealed that the department has only visited abortion businesses four times in the past 10 years, each time in order to investigate a public complaint or because a facility moved locations. There is no scope mentioned, just a quick sentence on each that states, “No deficiencies were identified.” Abortion businesses in Rhode Island lack oversight.
