TN Dept of Health: We do not license abortion facilities

You would imagine that a straightforward bill stating that the dr. performing an abortion should have admitting privileges at a hospital in the county or adjacent county in which the abortion is performed would be sail through committee?? The reason is obvious... if there are complications the dr. can treat the patient at the hospital. 

Second part just asks that the dept. of health,  that   already gather non identifying information about abortions  to publish this data on their website  along with their  many other statistics for public consumption. 

Interesting that the dept. of health rep. acknowledged that there is no "teeth" in the law currently and only reminder letters are sent out to abortion providers requesting this required data from abortion sites.  She also acknowledged that they do not license abortion facilities.

Once again, listen to the angst expressed  and twisting of the bill's language and intent to obstruct.  What are they afraid of? ?? Surely everyone wants the woman's health to be protected and asking the dr. performing the surgical procedure to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital is not out of line !!!!   Is it????
