WMC Abortion Clinic in Cincinnati Ohio abortion facility
Martin Haskell has three abortion clinics. His Cincinnati location has moved to Sharonville, OH, a suburb of Cincinnati. The Women's Med Center clinics have a long history of legal problems because of the requirement that they must be licensed as ambulatory surgical centers and must also have a transfer agreement with a nearby hospital. Haskell's problem is that no hospital wants to agree to be associated with his business. Not one, in the entire state. Ohio eventually made an unjustified exception but is now trying to enforce the law. This has become a significant legal battle. The Sharonville Health Department has made it clear to the state that it strongly believes this is an unsafe facility.
The opening of the Women's Med Center abortion clinic has been kept quiet by Haskell and the other abortionists involved, but it has not gone completely unnoticed. The story has gained national attention and many local businesses and residents simply do not want to have a business where children's lives are being taken so close to where they live and work. An estimated 50 children are killed every week by the abortion clinic in Cincinnati.
Below is a letter to the editor sent to the Cincinnati Enquirer by Dr. Steve Brinn. Dr. Brinn is part of a group pediatric practice which for a time was forced to share a driveway with the Women's Med Center.
The three pediatricians of Liberty Sharonville Pediatrics have practiced in Sharonville for 31 years, caring for infants and children since 1979. Our present building was built in 1985. Imagine our shock and disbelief, when we learned that an abortion clinic was opening in the building 50-feet from our front door. Why would a clinic performing abortions be so insensitive to a group practice treating children for 31 years? To have a group of OB/GYN doctors terminating fetuses just outside our door, to force our mothers and their babies drive through a common driveway, driving by the front of an abortion clinic, in order to park in our lot to have their babies cared for is an atrocity. We are here to prevent infant diseases, and they are here to end infant lives. We may not have the legal right to get them to move but we will do anything in our power to vocalize our personal disgust with their mission.
Dr. Steve Brinn, M.D. Board Certified Pediatrician
After a botched abortion at the Cincinnati abortion clinic and another just weeks later at the Women's Med Center abortion clinic in Dayton a complaint was filed with the State Medical Board of Ohio. The health department tried to investigate but witnesses said investigators were not allowed to go into the building until Haskell was "prepared" to let them in.
Women's Med Center, Ltd has 40 employees and reports net sales of $1,800,000 as of 2013. Ironically, it is classified by the US Census Bureau as providing "Child and Youth Services". Forte' Management Corporation, which was established to be the parent company of the abortion clinics, has five employees and net sales of $440,000.
