Statement on decision by Complete Healthcare for Women to stop providing surgical abortion care
This statement can be attributed to Kellie Copeland, Executive Director, NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio.
"For months, anti-choice extremists have targeted the doctors at Complete Healthcare for Women because they provided their patients with abortion care in addition to their other obstetric and gynecological services. These doctors have been harassed at their practice, leaflets calling them "killers” have been distributed in their neighborhood and protesters have picketed a hospital where they have admitting privileges. I would not be surprised if this campaign of harassment played a role in their decision to stop providing abortion care to their patients. No one should face this harassment for providing constitutionally protected health care services.”
