"The medical care provided in abortion centers is Alabama is substandard.
"It is not required that doctors performing abortions be board certified, have hospital privileges, or carry malpractice insurance.
"No other area of medicine is practiced under such inadequate guidelines…
"As a physician, I feel ashamed that abortionists practice substandard medicine. As a woman, I am angry we are singled out for such shoddy treatment. So long as abortion is legal, it is negligent on the part of the state to allow this to continue."
