Capital Care granted new license, can now perform surgical abortions

Capital Care in Toledo can now perform surgical abortions in Toledo (WNWO).

Wednesday, Capital Care got the green light to begin performing surgical abortions again.

The Ohio Department of Health granted it a new Ambulatory Surgical Facility license.

Capital Care partnered with ProMedica in February for a transfer agreement.

Capital Care lawyer Jennifer Branch described the legal battle as "long, expensive and frustrating."

She went on to say, "This is a victory for women who need access to safe and legal abortions, and a reminder that despite the odds, never give up."

Capital Care tells NBC 24 that they will wait to begin abortions until the license officially comes in the mail.
