 The Ohio Supreme Court has agreed to hear a dispute over whether to shut down Toledo’s last abortion clinic.

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine wants the state Supreme Court to overturn lower court rulings that have kept open the abortion clinic.
The earlier rulings have said abortion restrictions imposed on Capital Care Network of Toledo were unconstitutional and that the state exceeded its regulatory authority.
The issue centers on a 2014 Ohio Department of Health decision to shut down Capital Care for lack of a patient-transfer agreement with a local hospital. Such agreements were mandated, and public hospitals barred from providing them, under restrictions Ohio lawmakers passed in 2014.
