On a tip from reader Jaime:
G&H Healthcare, formerly known as Ohio Women’s Center, in Green, Ohio, is being evicted because of disturbances created by anti-choice protesters outside the clinic, says Green’s Mayor, Dick Norton. The health care facility provides non-surgical abortion care.
Mayor Norton noted that the health care facility was "in complete
compliance" with local zoning laws. So why is G&H being kicked out?
As the Akron Beacon Journal reports:
Norton said that representatives of the complex’s owner, CAM Inc.,
notified him that it is issuing a three-day eviction notice to G&H
because the business disturbed other tenants and didn’t share complete
or accurate information on its lease application.

Right to Life of Summit County has been holding demonstrations outside the Corporate Woods Parkway office complex, and members have been emailing the Mayor’s office to voice their opposition to the clinic’s presence. Owners of the office building have not been asked by the mayor to evict G&H.
Why would the mayor object to the work of an abortion clinic? Says Right to Life of Summit County executive director, Gregory D. Frank:
”The mayor is the executive branch of the city and, as such, he’s providing protection for all citizens…We consider the unborn a citizen, and they’re not being served.
They’re actually being killed via the abortion facility. We wanted to
make him aware that that was done on his watch.”
G&H Healthcare did not respond to the reporter’s request for comment, but a staff member at an affiliated organization responded, ”We have referred everything to our attorney."
