Sign Petition to ProMedica
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, February 14, 2018 (Cincinnati, OH): Last week, The Ohio Supreme Court ruled that because abortion business Capital Care Network of Toledo violated a standing rule of 21 years requiring all ambulatory surgical facilities to have written hospital transfer agreements to facilitate emergency treatment, the Ohio Department of Health was within its rights to revoke the clinic’s operating license.
Now, influenced by abortion activists including Toledo-born, feminist Gloria Steinem, ProMedica is poised to enter into a transfer agreement with Capital Care Network of Toledo and thus keep this substandard abortion facility open.
“Capital ‘Care’ abortionists have a history of objectifying and abusing women and children plus medical malpractice, yet abortion activists turn a blind eye,” said Paula Westwood, Executive Director, Right to Life of Greater Cincinnati. “Another example-the abortion industry’s claim of being pro-woman is a farce.”
ACTION: Sign Greater Toledo Right to Life’s petition to ProMedica to not give Capital Care a transfer agreement, placing women and children, born and unborn, at risk.
Background (from Ohio Right to Life):
Capital Care Network has been fined by the Ohio Department of Health based on an investigation that uncovered significant departure from typical health and safety standards.
State health inspectors discovered that after one woman had an abortion, the doctor believed that the woman’s bowel might have been perforated. Capital Care Network did not follow their own medical emergencies procedure, which would have been to call 911.
Instead, they sent the patient out the back door and into an employee’s personal car. They dropped her off at the hospital, and then came right back, not ensuring that the woman was treated promptly.
Aside from the health and safety issues, Capital Care Network has employed two doctors within the last four years who have had their medical licenses suspended.
Dr. Thomas Michaelis was convicted of possession and distribution of child pornography. Michaelis has a history of sexual abuse and lost his medical license in the 90s, but it was reinstated. He worked at Capital Care Network until May 2014.
Dr. David Burkons’ medical license was suspended last year because he gave his staff blank prescriptions that he had signed and didn’t report the prescription of controlled substances to six patients.
