Springfield, Ill. - The chairman of the Illinois State Medical Society Tuesday blamed the state for poor conditions in abortion clinics. Testifying before a special Senate subcommittee examining some of the abortion abuses uncovered recently by the Sun-Times and the Better Government Assn., Dr. Robert Hartman, chairman of the medical society's board of directors, urged the state Departments of Public Health and of Registration and Education to better enforce the law regulating abortion clinics and doctors.

In a reaction to the Sun-Times' "Abortion Profiteers" series, a lack of oversight by the state is to blame for poor care provided by Chicago-area abortion clinics.
