HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania health officials renewed their inspections of free-standing abortion clinics in the months after a drug investigation revealed a “house of horrors” facility that operated for years in Philadelphia.

The state Health Department says it uncovered poor conditions last fall at two Abortion as an Alternative clinics, one in Bensalem and the other in the Germantown section of Philadelphia.

The 73-year-old physician who operated the two clinics received scathing reports and was ordered to suspend his abortion practice.

Two days later, Dr. Soleiman M. Soli announced he would shut down instead. His attorney says he is unavailable for comment.

Health inspectors say they found drugs decades past their expiration dates, inadequate or inoperable equipment and the mishandling of fetal tissue.

The Associated Press sought results of the state’s clinic inspections in January under a Right-to-Know Law request.
