Montgomery abortion clinic agrees to close

MONTGOMERY, AL (AP) - The Beacon Women's Center, one of seven clinics in Alabama permitted to perform abortions, is closing after state health inspectors found violations in procedures and care of patients.

Under an agreement with the state health department, the Montgomery clinic gave up its license, ceased performing abortions and is closing operations this week.

Rick Harris, who oversees provider standards for the state health department, said Monday the clinic was cited for numerous violations when patient complaints were checked out.

In one instance, 17 abortions were performed without sedation because the key to the medicine cabinet was not on site. An official with Beacon Women's Clinic was not immediately available for comment Monday.
