Pennsylvania abortion clinics ordered to shape up

    Inspections last year of Pennsylvania’s 22 abortion clinics uncovered problems the health department is ordering them to correct.

    Though none of the violations come close to those of the West Philly office of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 14 clinics in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Allentown, East Liberty, Upland, York, West Chester, Harrisburg, Reading, Norristown and Warminster must get themselves in order, as the Associated Press reports.

    Gosnell has been charged with eight counts of murder. State inspections of abortion clinics resume last year after 15 years without oversight.
