Republican Dirty Tricks Shut Down Abortion Clinic.

Published on Feb 11, 2018

Capital Care was the last abortion provider in Toledo. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, the hosts of The Young Turks, break it down.

“COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The Ohio Supreme Court delivered a pair of blows to abortion clinics in Toledo and Cleveland on Tuesday.

In a 5-2 ruling, the high court upheld a state order shuttering Capital Care of Toledo, the northwest Ohio city’s last abortion clinic, in a decision the facility is expected to appeal.

Justices found that the Ohio Department of Health acted within its rights in 2014 when it decided to shut down Capital Care of Toledo. Justices say the clinic violated a requirement because it no longer had a valid patient-transfer agreement.

Chief Justice Maureen O’Connor dissented in an opinion joined by former Justice William M. O’Neill, who submitted his opinion before resigning Jan. 26.

O’Connor wrote that Capital Care had complied with the state Health Department’s rule on transfer agreements and that it was only abortion-related restrictions tucked into the state budget in 2013 that required the partnering hospital to be “local.” She concluded those new laws were unconstitutional.

The restrictions mandated that clinics’ long-required transfer agreements be with local hospitals, and also barred public hospitals from providing them. The University of Toledo Hospital ended its transfer arrangement with Capital Care about two months before the law was enacted.

Republican Attorney General Mike DeWine’s office asked the high court during oral arguments in September to override lower court rulings and uphold the state’s order. A lawyer for the clinic told the court that the state is trying to prevent women in northwestern Ohio from seeking legal abortions and is putting them at greater risk.”

Those laws have to be unconstitutional. First you prevent publicly supported hospitals from signing an agreement for transfer of patients from the abortion clinic, then you require the abortion clinic from operating unless it has such an agreement-which the state legislature outlawed.

After that gets overturned, every woman in the Toledo area who has a child in the past few years should sue the state of Ohio for support of her child, for removing her choice in this unconstitutional manner.
