Bill for surprise AZ abortion clinic inspections debated

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The House of Representatives is debating a bill that would allow surprise inspections at abortion clinics.

The Center for Arizona Policy is pushing this one.

If passed, the Department of Health Services would not have to obtain a warrant to conduct unscheduled inspections in the state's nine licensed abortion clinics.

Opponents of the bill say federal courts already ruled unscheduled inspections are illegal.
