      Abortion providers could soon be non-existent in Toledo

      The last abortion clinic in the city of Toledo is in danger of closing within the month.

      TOLEDO - The last abortion clinic in the city of Toledo is in danger of closing within the month.

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

      The Ohio Department of Health requires Capital Care Network of Toledo (CCN), and any other ambulatory care center, to have an agreement to transfer patients to a hospital if there are complications.

      The University of Toledo Medical Center canceled its medical transfer agreement with CCN after a state lawmaker and anti-abortion group claimed it was illegal.

      CCN has not signed with another hospital and 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.
