Wright State is collaborating with late-term abortionist Martin Haskell

The Facts

These are the facts about Wright State's collaboration with notorious late-term abortionist Martin Haskell who operates Dayton Ohio's only surgical abortion clinic.
1
Required Hospital Transfer Agreement

Ohio law requires that all ambulatory surgical facilities, like abortion centers, have a transfer agreement with a local hospital. If an ambulatory surgical facility does not have a hospital transfer agreement, the Ohio Department of Health will shut down that facility.

2
Dayton Hospitals Refuse Transfer Agreement

No local hospital will grant a transfer agreement to owner/abortionist Martin Haskell or to Roslyn Kade, who does most of the abortions in Kettering. And it’s not just here. They can’t get a transfer agreement from any hospital in Cincinnati, where they have done abortions.

In fact, the Ohio Department of Health has closed down Haskell's surgical abortion center in Sharonville for not having a transfer agreement with a local hospital.

3
Without Transfer Agreement Haskell Must Shut Down

Without a hospital transfer agreement the abortion center would be shut down by the Ohio Department of Health. In fact, in the past the ODH has issued shut-down orders when the Kettering abortion center had not provided proof of transfer agreement.

4
Wright State Offers to Keep Haskell in Business

In November of 2013 doctors in the Wright State Physicians group agreed to provide emergency back up services at Miami Valley Hospital for the Kettering abortion center and on the basis of that contract the abortionist requested a variance from the requirement for a hospital transfer agreement.

5
Haskell and Planned Parenthood Sue Department of Health

In September of 2015, Haskell joined with Planned Parenthood of Southwest Ohio in filing a lawsuit against Ohio Department Director, Richard Hodges. The lawsuit maintains that Ohio's regulations related to these abortion facilities are unconstitutional because they threaten the availability of abortion in Southwest Ohio.

The Wright State Physicians Obstetrics & Gynecology group directly enables the killing to continue at the Kettering abortion center.

Call Wright State Physicians and ask them to stop collaborating with late-term abortionist Martin Haskell.
