A late-term abortion facility in Ohio will remain open despite repeatedly failing to comply with the law.
Back in 2016, the Ohio Department of Health revoked the license of the Women’s Med Center in Kettering, near Dayton, for failing to have a written transfer agreement with a hospital for patient emergencies. Since then, the abortion facility and health officials have been battling in court over its license.
On Wednesday, however, Ohio Right to Life learned that the department granted a new license to the abortion facility.
“Women’s Med Center has struggled for years to meet the same requirements that all other ambulatory surgical facilities are required to meet. These laws were put in place to protect women,” said Stephanie Ranade Krider, vice president of Ohio Right to Life. “The fact that Martin Haskell continues to seek exceptions to basic health and safety rules shows where his true priorities lie: protecting his abortion business.”
Earlier this month, LifeNews reported the Ohio Supreme Court denied a request for appeal from Haskell in a court battle over its license. The news brought hope to pro-life advocates that the abortion facility would close soon.
