Ohio Orders Abortion Clinic Closed, Breaking State Health Laws

State officials in Ohio have ordered the closure of an abortion clinic in Ohio that is breaking a state health and safety law designed to protect women’s health.

Although abortion advocates frequently cite women’s health as the reason for supporting abortion, Ohio state officials today exposed a cover-up involving Center for Choice of Toledo, a local abortion center.

According to Ohio Department of Health documents, this abortion clinic operated without a transfer agreement resulting in a recommended closure and a $25,000 fine.

The transfer agreement is needed so abortion practitioners can quickly admit a woman who was injured in a botched abortion, so a local hospital or medical center could provide her with emergency medical treatment.

Officials with Ohio Right to Life told LifeNews they are glad the state health department took action.

“This is yet another case of the abortion industry disregarding women’s health and well-being. Center for Choice lied to the Department of Health in order to cover-up the fact that they were breaking Ohio law,” said President of Ohio Right to Life Mike Gonidakis. “The abortion industry strives to paint a rosy picture of women’s healthcare, but the reality is that the abortion industry acts with callous disregard for women and of course their unborn babies.”

According to Ohio law, Center for Choice of Toledo exists as an Ambulatory Surgical Facility and because of this legal status, the clinic is not a full-service medical facility. In order for Center for Choice of Toledo to operate legally, the clinic has to have a transfer agreement with a full-service hospital to handle all cases of abortion complications against the mother. The clinic has not had a legal transfer agreement since 2010, according to Ohio Department of Health documents, Gonidakis said.

“It’s a crime that Center for Choice has performed illegal abortions for the last two years, jeopardizing women for the sake of profit, but we take hope in the fact that they will cease taking innocent human life,” he told LifeNews.

Again, because its legal places like this can be shut down for being so harmful...regulations keep women safe.

What must it be like to live in your world, be in your head, where you spend time daily scouring for information on abortion clinics and horrors in hopes you'll convince people that not trusting women to make sound choices for their own health is what's best for everyone.

I really can't imagine.  One post after another with the same crap.

I don't spend any time scouring the internet.    They come right to my inbox.  If one baby is saved, it is worth it.  It isn't the trusting the women to make choices for their own health that concerns me, it is trusting them to make choices for the health of their unborn child I am concerned about.

I admire your tenactity. I would be more fond of your 'agenda' if the messages you sent were of actions by yourself and others that provide care and encouragement for pregnant women. Random articles and blogs about those who don't follow the letter of the law in legal matters are nothing more than finger pointing and really don't persuade people IMO.

My husband and I used to volunteer at Birthright for several years, first in the Boston area and then the Kansas City area.  Our ministries have taken us in a different direction in the last several years but we will still go down to planned parenthood for prayer vigils.   We don't protest, we pray and always have sidewalk counselors available.  We don't do that as often as I would like to.

WE also stay up on events that are coming up for a vote when they are actually put on a ballot.

Have you worked at any women's shelters? Rape Support Groups? Incest Survivors? I wonder if you'd have more compassion for the women if you better understood what its like to be without power in a sexual situation.

If you read the Ohio Dept of Health's order, you see they had several problems.  No disaster preparedness, no regular quality control measures, some equipment that wasn't up to snuff, etc.

"According to Ohio Department of Health documents, this abortion clinic operated without a transfer agreement resulting in a recommended closure and a $25,000 fine."

It has been recommended they close and they've received a fine.  They can request a hearing within 30 days of this measure, or their license will be revoked.

So this is a case of the system working as it's supposed to.  If this clinic doesn't address the listed measures, they can be closed.

 Interesting how some don't care about women and adolescences being harmed and sometimes killed through botched abortions with many claiming it as a rare thing, yet they don't have the same response to the other post of a man in Africa.
