Ohio Right to Life

Anti-abortion groups wants disciplinary action taken against a Kettering doctor who performed an abortion on a woman suspected of being high on heroin.

 

Both Dayton and Ohio Right To Life groups have filed a complaint with the State Medical Board based on information they received from an Ohio Department of Health report. It indicates that in 2015, the Women’s Med Center in Dayton performed an abortion on a 31-year-old woman who was physically unstable and incoherent, possibly due to a mix of pain pills and heroin.

  State lawmakers are introducing new legislation that would require women who have abortions or miscarriages to designate arrangements for burial or cremation of fetuses.
