Martin Haskell, who claims he helped develop the partial-birth abortion procedure, has operated clinics in Ohio for years but currently runs only one in Dayton.

Margie Christie of Dayton Right to Life Society says the abortion clinic has been the subject of 911 emergency calls, and other abortionists hired by Haskell have their own troubling history with complaints filed against them with the state medical board and other agencies.

Haskell also has a reputation for using political connections and the courts to remain open, and pro-life activists say the Dayton abortuary has remained open for 20 years without a state license because of court appeals.

Christie says there is news on that front, however.

"The Ohio Supreme Court sided actually with the Ohio Department of Health and said that their license revocation from back in 2017 should stand,” she says, “which is great news for us here.”

The remaining option for Haskell will be to file suit against the state in the federal court system and ask for an injunction to continue committing abortions pending outcome of a trial.
