ORLANDO — Florida Gov. Rick Scott announced today that he has asked the Agency for Health Care Administration to immediately begin investigating the 16 Planned Parenthood offices in Florida that perform abortion procedures to ensure they are in full compliance with the law.
“The videos coming out about Planned Parenthood are deeply troubling to say the least," Scott said. "It is against the law for any organization to sell body parts. I asked AHCA Secretary Liz Dudek to begin immediately dispatching staff from their licensure office to evaluate the 16 Planned Parenthood offices in Florida that perform abortion procedures to ensure they are in full compliance with the law.
"If a Planned Parenthood office is not following the law, we will move quickly to take legal and regulatory action against them," he said. "We hold our health care organizations in Florida to the highest standards of safety and we expect them to fully comply with the law at all times.”
There are three Planned Parenthood locations near West Orange, including two in Orlando and one in Kissimmee.
