New NE Ohio Abortion Clinic Faces Eviction Because Pro-Lifer Protesters Disturb the Peace
According to a story in the Akron Beacon-Journal, G & H Healthcare (formerly Ohio Women’s Center) is being evicted from its new location in the suburban Corporate Woods Parkway office complex in Green, Ohio.
Beacon Journal medical writer Cheryl Powell reports:
GREEN: Protesters might be close to scoring a victory in their efforts to force an abortion provider out of a new suburban location.The Green clinic provides ''medical abortion,'' which is a nonsurgical termination of a pregnancy (using a combination of medicines, including Mifeprex, also known as RU-486) in ''a private doctor's office setting,'' according to its website.
Green Mayor Dick Norton said on Wednesday that the owner of a Corporate Woods Parkway office complex is evicting a business known as G&H Healthcare because of disturbances, including demonstrations outside the complex.
G&H Healthcare had been known as Ohio Women's Center before it relocated this month from Akron to Green. The Ohio Women's Center's Web site says that it offers nonsurgical abortions.
Right to Life of Summit County has been urging its members to call or e-mail the mayor's office and to hold ''peaceful and prayerful'' protests outside the business since last week, said Gregory D. Frank, the group's executive director.
In a recent Action Alert, Planned Parenthood adds that "G & H Healthcare provides a wide range of women's health services, including birth control, well woman care and early medical abortion. They are even laying the plans to offer breast cancer screenings and adoption services."
