Health Department Cracks Down on Illegally Operating Abortion Facilities
Planned Parenthood Fined $25,000 for Health and Safety Violations
- no experienced director of nursing on staff
- improper storage of eight containers of human tissue
- 3-month overdue follow-up documentation for hospitalized abortion patient with perforated uterus
- incomplete documentation for abortion patient who was hospitalized for bleeding
- use of expired and undocumented chemicals and equipment used on surgical suction hoses
Further enforcement actions by the health department were taken against Northeast Ohio Women’s Center, which was denied a license to practice surgical abortions due to multiple health and safety violations, including failure to properly train staff, lack of a director of nursing, and expired medications and pregnancy tests.

“Without Capital Care Network, life in Toledo will be safer for women and children” said Gonidakis. “This week, our government assured all of us that women’s health and patient safety is priority number one. It is deeply troubling that some people are advocating for this illegal operation to remain open, putting women’s lives at risk.”
