A Christian ministry in Toledo, Ohio, plans to turn an abandoned abortion clinic into a memorial garden for the unborn. Centre for Choice, the Uptown Toledo facility where 50,000 abortions were performed between 1983 and 2013, was purchased on October 7th by Agora, a Christian prayer organization that is working with a group of local pro-life organizations, said Ed Sitter, executive director of Foundation for Life and Greater Toledo Right to Life.
The new owners bought the centre at an auction and plan to demolish the building and turn the grounds into a green space with benches and possibly a waterfall or fountain, according to Sitter. Centre for Choice had been the site of numerous protests during the 1980s and ongoing prayer vigils through the decades. It closed last year after it failed to acquire a written transfer agreement with a local full-service hospital as required by Ohio law.
The lone abortion clinic operating in Toledo today may face the same fate. The Capital Care Network has been seeking an administrative variance from the state that would allow it to remain open without a hospital transfer pact.
