First abortuary in OH closes its doors

Sorry, we're closedAn Ohio abortion facility with a sordid and troubled history is no more.

Founders Women's Health Center in Columbus, Ohio, has a 45-year history, having opened after the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision in which U.S. Supreme Court justices found a right to abortion in the Constitution and legalized abortion on demand. Mark Harrington with Created Equal conducted a press conference this week in front of the abortuary where tens of thousands of preborn babies were terminated (see video below).

"They have currently over $1 million in tax liens against this abortion company from the city of Columbus, the state of Ohio, and the federal government," Harrington reported.

Problems at the facility were numerous: a local hospital revoked its agreement to handle botched abortions done at the abortuary; the primary abortionist has no medical malpractice insurance; the Ohio Department of Health has fined the clinic $40,000 for wrongdoing; and an abortionist sliced the uterus of a woman who actually had an ectopic pregnancy, resulting in the woman being sterile. There's more, according to Harrington:

"They employed a known child sex offender, Tom Michaelis," he said. "His medical license was revoked after he pled guilty to sexual imposition while employed by Founders Women's Health Center. Michaelis was indicted by the U.S. attorney on federal child pornography charges."

Harrington says while it's possible the clinic is closed for good, they are investigating to determine whether the owner plans to relocate – and if so, he says pro-life counselors will continue their vigil to spare babies and their mothers from abortion.
