PA Court Says Security Risks for Abortion Clinic Workers Justify Redacting Names from Government Records

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania court says security risks for people who work in abortion clinics justify redacting names and license numbers before making government records public. Commonwealth Court said Thursday the Health Department acted properly when it removed professional license numbers and the names of people on abortion clinic facility applications. The court ruled against Jean Crocco with the Pro-Life Action League, who told the court she sought the names to ensure patients receive proper care.
