An abortion clinic in Ohio has received some unwelcome news from the courts: it must comply with state law.
Capital Care Network, which operates in Toledo, has fought in the courts since 2013, eventually taking its case to the Ohio Supreme Court to fight surgical clinic regulations that would put it out of business.
Ed Sitter of Greater Toledo Right to Life tells OneNewsNow that God has answered prayers after the supreme court upheld a license revocation that came from the Ohio Dept. of Health License.
The abortion clinic claimed the state had singled out abortion clinics for a requirement that outpatient surgical clinics have to have a contractual relationship with a local hospital to handle their emergency cases, including botched abortions. Sitter says that's not so.
"These are standards that all ambulatory surgical facilities must maintain. It's not singling out abortion clinics," he advises.
"But at the same time," he adds, " should abortion clinics provide less safety and care for their patients than other similar facilities that perform other outpatient surgery?"
