Toledo's last abortion clinic could close

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — The last abortion clinic in the city of Toledo is in danger of closing within the month.

If that happens, according to The Blade newspaper ( ), Toledo would become the largest city in Ohio without an abortion provider.

The Ohio Department of Health requires Capital Care Network of Toledo to have a transfer agreement with a hospital in case of complications from an abortion procedure. But the facility's transfer agreement with the University of Toledo Medical Center expired July 31, and it doesn't have another one lined up.

That could cause the health department to revoke its health-care facility license. Toledo's other abortion clinic, Center for Choice, closed in June for similar reasons.

Clinic officials didn't respond to requests for comment, but the facility remains open for now.
