Capital Care Network of Toledo Fined $40,000 by the Ohio Department of Health

Published on

The last abortion clinic in Toledo was found to have been operating in breach of Ohio law, putting the health and safety of women at risk.

Editor’s note. The following is an excerpt from a post by Ohio Right to Life, NRLC’s state affiliate.

COLUMBUS, Ohio—On Monday, Ohio Right to Life announced that the Ohio Department of Health had issued a significant civil fine of $40,000.00 against Capital Care Network of Toledo, the last remaining abortion clinic in Toledo. In response to a public records request, health investigators discovered that Capital Care was in violation of health and safety standards at its facility.

State health inspectors discovered that, following an abortion, a doctor had suspected perforation of the bowel in one woman. The Capital Care Network failed to adhere to their own medical emergency protocol, which would have necessitated the immediate calling of 911. Instead, the patient was directed to exit the premises via the rear entrance and into the vehicle of an employee. Subsequently, they transported the woman to the hospital, but did not ensure that she was treated promptly upon her arrival.

The fine imposed on Capital Care Network coincides with the organisation’s forthcoming appearance before the Ohio Supreme Court in the case of Capital Care Network of Toledo v. State of Ohio Department of Health. The Supreme Court will hear arguments today to determine whether Capital Care Network can remain open, despite being ordered to close a few years ago due to a lack of a transfer agreement with a local hospital. The Ohio Attorney General’s Office, which is led by Mike DeWine, a pro-life advocate, will defend this important pro-life law.
