Another less-than-safe abortion clinic

A large abortion clinic called the Metropolitan Medical Associates Englewood Center for Women in New Jersey has been temporarily shut down by state health officials after they found violations posing "immediate and serious risk of harm to patients."

Problems included but were not limited to "infection control, instruments, equipment used for sterilization of patient care use items and the processing of equipment."

If only their clinic was as clean and inviting as their web site, huh?

The investigation which led to the temporary closing was initiated after emergency room staff treated a woman whom experienced complications from an abortion at the Englewood clinic.

The Metropolitan Medical Associates abortion clinic in Englewood may sound familiar to prolifers. They've been in the news before. This is the same clinic where abortionists admitted to performing 1,500 partial-birth abortions annually back in the mid-90's and one of the clinics that advertised in a Pennsylvania yellow page book trying to convince Pennsylvania teens to cross the border to avoid Pennsylvania's parental consent law.

The National Abortion Federation's web page for New Jersey lists "Metropolitan Surgical Associates" in Englewood, New Jersey with the same phone number as Metropolitan Medical Associates as one of their member clinics.
