Ohio's abortion-clinic inspections more frequent under Kasich

Since Republican Gov. John Kasich took office, state health inspectors have reported 17 times as many violations a year in Ohio abortion clinics as during the tenure of his predecessor, Democrat Ted Strickland.

Although no one can prove a cause and effect absolutely, hundreds of records examined by The Dispatch show that not only the number of violations but also the types of violations found at abortion clinics during the health department’s inspections during the past 10 years have differed greatly depending on who is the governor.

A wider range of violations, including “safety and sanitation” and “adverse events,” have been found in the almost-seven years that Kasich has served. For example, an oral-suction machine at one abortion facility was found coated with a heavy layer of dust and dirt.
