Planned Parenthood of Southwest Ohio and Women’s Med Group of Dayton, Ohio are suing to overturn Ohio’s 2013 regulations requiring abortion clinics to obtain emergency transfer agreements with hospitals.

In a lawsuit alleging a “deliberate strategy to severely limit access to abortion” that does “not promote women’s health or any other valid state interest,” the abortion clinics argue the law infringes on abortion seekers’ “right to choose,” abortionists’ due process rights, as well as the state’s constitutional requirement limiting bills to one subject apiece.

Planned Parenthood Federation of America CEO Cecile Richards also claimed that if the rules were allowed to stay in place, “half of the health centers that provide abortion in Ohio will have closed in only two years.”

On the same day this report broke, LifeSiteNews also reported that abortionist David Burkons, whose previous facility was shut down by state and federal authorities for health, safety, and drug violations, and whom Greater Cincinnati Right to Life accuses of “holding the record for the most botched RU-486 abortions in the state,” is opening a new abortion facility in Ohio.
