COLUMBUS, Ohio— Today, Ohio Right to Life released a statement responding the Dayton abortion mill, Women’s Med, announcing that it will permanently close on September 15, 2022.
Since Ohio’s Heartbeat law went into effect this past June, Women’s Med stopped performing abortions at their Ohio location and instead referred patients to their Indiana location. Due to Indiana’s recently enacted pro-life law going into effect on September 15th, Women's Med will now be closing both locations permanently.
The following statement can be attributed to Ohio Right to Life President Michael Gonidakis:
"Ohio Right to Life is grateful that this notorious abortion facility will shut down for good. An unimaginable number of babies have lost their lives there. No longer will the greater Dayton area be subjected to this great tragedy. There are countless life-affirming options for pregnant women to receive real health care, prenatal care, and various social services to ensure both her and her baby are healthy and safe. We know the Montgomery County pro-life and health care community stand ready to provide true care to each and every pregnant woman in need."
Founded in 1967, Ohio Right to Life, with more than 35 chapters and local affiliates, is Ohio's oldest and largest grassroots pro-life organization. Recognized as the flagship of the pro-life movement in Ohio, ORTL works through legislation and education to promote and defend innocent human life from conception to natural death.
