Akron, Cleveland abortion facilities close


AKRON, Ohio -- The Akron Women's Medical Group abortion clinic and an affiliated facility in Cleveland have closed, leaving Ohio with eight abortion clinics -- half the number in 2011.The physician who owns both facilities, Gerald Grossman, could not be reached.Anti-abortion volunteers who routinely staked out the Akron clinic had noticed temporary shutdowns before at the East Market Street facility, but this summer's closure was different. For Right to Life of Northeast Ohio executive director Diane Leipold, the permanent shutdown is cause for celebration."We are very happy that they've closed, but we're keeping our radar up," Leipold said. "As much as we want this clinic to close, we want people to make better choices and use the other alternatives available."Northeast Ohio women can still obtain abortions at facilities in Bedford, Cleveland and Cuyahoga Falls, NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio Executive Director Kellie Copeland said.
