SUPCO Declines To Hear Appeal From Women's Health Clinic

The Ohio Supreme Court won't hear a Dayton abortion clinic's challenge of the state's increasingly stringent operational rules, placing the facility's future in question. 

The abortion-rights group NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio says Women's Med Center, the Dayton area's last abortion clinic, "will continue to pursue options to continue to provide safe and legal abortion."  The clinic has been unable to secure the waiver and written transfer agreement with a nearby hospital, as required by law. The Ohio Department of Health revoked its license in April after a lower court upheld the order . A Montgomery County court blocked that revocation while the clinic appealed.
