Another BPAS clinic has been criticised by the UK’s care watchdog for putting women at risk.
Earlier this month, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) rated the abortion giant’s Streatham clinic as “requires improvement”, and branded its leadership “inadequate”.
Now it says care and treatment at BPAS’s Doncaster clinic “was not always provided in a safe way for patients”.
The report found that not all equipment met infection and prevention control requirements at all times.
“This meant that patients could be put at risk of infection when undergoing surgical termination of pregnancy.”
It also found that children as young as 13 were being given surgical abortions and treated as though they were adults.
In one case, a 15-year-old girl’s sepsis was not initially treated because the clinic did not routinely perform the necessary tests.
‘Coercion or abuse’
Alithea Williams, a spokeswoman for the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children, said it was “yet another BPAS clinic which is putting women’s health and safety at risk”.
She continued: “Under-age girls having abortions should send out warning signs. Why were they presenting for abortion? Were there issues of coercion or abuse in these cases?
“These are the questions BPAS should have been asking and acting upon if they really cared about the children coming into their clinic.”
