Created Equal is leading a demonstration along with other pro-life activists in Toledo to ask two local hospitals, ProMedica and St. Luke's, to keep their word and stay out of the grisly business of abortion.
Ohio state law requires ambulatory surgical centers, like Capital Care network’s Toledo abortion facility, to have a transfer agreement with a local hospital. To date, Toledo’s ProMedica Hospital had chosen not to provide Capital Care the transfer agreement.
Randy Oostra, President and CEO of ProMedica, previously said, "Toledo ProMedica Hospital does not have transfer agreements with abortion clinics. However, with or without a transfer agreement, we will perform any necessary treatment of women, or any patient, in need of emergent care."
However, following the Supreme Court decision last week, ProMedica spokesman Tedra White stated, "At this point, ProMedica has not changed its position; obviously we’re considering it. We feel like this Ohio Supreme Court decision warrants a review of the issue, but we have not changed our position."
In response, Created Equal first led a campaign to generate phone calls and emails to ProMedica, urging them not to collaborate with Capital Care.
