Unsafe Spotlight

Wisconsin appears to lack any regulatory framework for inspecting abortion businesses. AUL submitted a public records request, under the Wisconsin Open Records Law, Wisc. Stat. § 19.31 et seq., to the Department of Health Services, and the department informed AUL legal staff that it does not regulate abortion businesses. There were no state inspection reports to be reviewed. The only inspection reports came from the federal government, which conducts annual inspections on certain CLIA-certified pathology labs, including Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin. These inspections revealed a lack of competence among staff and safety issues.
