There are 25 abortion clinics recognized to be under the purview of the New York State health department, but they are not visited very often for inspection. Eight clinics were never inspected in the years between 2000, and 2012, five were inspected one time, and eight were inspected two or three times. Altogether, the 25 clinics were paid a total of 45 visits in 12 years. New York State inspects restaurants every year (and harassed some during the power outages after Storm Sandy). Tanning salons are required to suffer inspections at least every two years.
Abortion advocates claim that there are 225 abortion providers in New York State. Facilities are permitted to perform abortions without revealing this in their operating certificates, explained Elizabeth Sullivan, records official at the Health Dept. The Department apparently does not maintain a full listing of abortion providers.
The Chiaroscuro Foundation, an organization which works to reduce abortions, filed a Freedom of Information lawsuit in order to pry this information from the state.
