Columbus, OH – Dec 1, 2016 – The facility license for notorious abortionist Martin Haskell's Dayton Women's Med Center has been revoked! According to the Associated Press, Haskell's attorney, Jennifer Branch, credits Created Equal's Killers Among Us project with the development.
Ohio law requires ambulatory surgical centers to have minimum standards, among which is a hospital transfer agreement. For years Haskell has been evading this state requirement through a variance or waiver. Earlier this year, we reported Haskell's variance had been denied because he was struggling to acquire enough doctors to sign on to support him.
"Our efforts combined with local activists have had an impact, evidenced by Haskell's inability to get individual doctors or hospitals to support his practice, leaving him with neither a transfer agreement nor a substantive basis for a variance. Now, it appears he may be forced to close his doors." – Mark Harrington, National Director, Created EqualSince last year, we've been actively discouraging doctors from sullying their hands by collaborating with Haskell. Our Killers Among Us project, which includes mobile billboards, hand-delivered postcards, and more, was active in the Dayton area to expose those who collaborate with Haskell.
From the AP story:
"The anti-abortion group Created Equal had launched a campaign aimed at calling out doctors involved in abortions, which included posters, mailers and vehicles circulating through the doctors' neighborhoods publicizing their names.
"'Other ob/gyn's in the community saw what was going on and didn't want to be part of it,' (Attorney for Martin Haskell Jennifer) Branch said."The result? Haskell failed to acquire enough doctors to serve as backup, his variance was denied, and today we can announce his facility license has been revoked by the Ohio Department of Health!
According to the AP, Haskell has 15 days to appeal the order.
