Ambulatory Surgery Centers

The bill requires abortions to be performed at Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASC's). Unlike office-based surgery center's, ASC's are regulated by an outside accreditation association that conducts routine inspections, which tends to motivate facilities to maintain a higher quality of care.

Will clinics close because of the bill? Yes, but I have no doubt the market will correct itself and we will soon see an increase in ASC's obtaining licensing to provide abortions.
