Third Since January of This Year
August 8, 2013 – Information from Ohio Right to Life
TOLEDO, Ohio–Ohio Right to Life has obtained documents issued by the Ohio Department of Health relating to a Toledo area abortion clinic violating state regulations. Capital Care Network of Toledo was provided notice by state health officials of its noncompliance, which according to state law, will result in the abortion provider closing in order to protect pregnant women’s health.
According to Ohio law, Capital Care exists as an Ambulatory Surgical Facility and because of this status, the clinic is not a full-service medical facility. In order for Capital Care Network 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.
Capital Care is the third abortion clinic to be closed in Ohio since January due to either health and safety violations or illegal operations.
