Part 6 of William Saletan's piece on dangerous abortion clinics in Florida and pro-choice efforts to prevent any type of regulations is up.
The draft bill released by the committee on March 5 was hardly earthshaking. Clinics would have to submit the names of their doctors to HRS as part of their annual license renewal. HRS would have to verify with DPR that each doctor was licensed. Anyone who leaked a doctor's name would be fired and charged with a first-degree misdemeanor. In fairness, and to close a loophole, the same rules would apply to any private doctor's office whose business was mostly abortions. Mary Grizzle, the bill's sponsor, wanted simple sanitation standards but agreed to propose none until Judge Gonzalez relaxed his injunction......

They saw no proof that the unsavory conditions in south Florida had caused any injuries. At bottom, they believed that no law could be a good law.
