Abortion centers continue to close as pro-life laws go into effect following the overturning of Roe v. Wade.
(LifeSiteNews) A scandal-ridden abortion chain plans to close its facilities in the Dayton and Indianapolis area unless there is a last-minute freeze on pro-life laws in Ohio and Indiana.
Women’s Medical Center in Dayton has a emergency history and only received a license to perform abortions after legal challenges and the hiring of new auxiliary physicians to meet the requirement of a state law. The center lost its license due to frequent health and safety violations. It was operated by Martin Haskell, an abortionist who helped pioneer horrible partial abortions.
“The only abortion clinic in the Dayton area plans to close in mid-September unless laws banning most abortions in Ohio and Indiana are suspended, a door-to-door confirmed Tuesday, Aug. 30. word of Women’s Med”, according to Cincinnati Applicant.

Ohio’s six-week abortion ban is pending legal challenge, as is Indiana’s ban about 95 percent of abortions. Indiana law prohibits independent abortion centers.
Ohio Right to Life celebrated the news.
“Ohio Right to Life is grateful that this notorious abortion center is permanently closing. Unimaginable numbers of babies have lost their lives there and the greater Dayton area will no longer be subject to this great tragedy,” said Mike Gonidakis, president of the Ohio Right to Life, according to the Cincinnati Journal “We know that Montgomery County’s pro-life and healthcare community stands ready to provide real care to every pregnant woman who may need it.”
