Years in the process – and abortionist still around

OhioThe wheels of justice are moving very slowly in Ohio's attempt to get an abortionist out of business.

Martin Haskell is an Ohio abortionist who at one time had several abortuaries in the state. Currently he owns only one, Women's Med Center in Dayton, which has a history of clinic standard violations and has been unable to get a hospital to agree to accept emergency cases from the clinic.

The Ohio Health Department has sought to close the clinic – but Haskell has appealed and fought the case to the state Supreme Court, which sided with the state in denying a license.

Margie Christie of Dayton Right to Life tells OneNewsNow that Haskell is running out of options.

Haskell, Martin (abortionist)"One of those options would be to go back to the Supreme Court and ask them to reconsider," she explains. "So that will take some time for that to play out. And then at that point we anticipate him to do one of two things. One, submit a new application which has to be considered independently on its own merits and the Ohio Health Department would have to rule on that application."

According to Christie, the state agency likely would not approve the application unless Haskell obtains an agreement with a local hospital to handle botched abortions. "I am almost 99 percent sure he will not get a hospital transfer agreement which he needs," the pro-lifer offers.

The other option? Haskell could also appeal to the Sixth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to stay open. He has a case before that court.

Christie says the state has been trying to shut Haskell down for years. "[For] decades – decades, honestly. It's incredible."
