ABORTION CLINIC


CINCINNATI'S ONLY ABORTION CLINIC SAYS IT HAS LINED UP A FOURTH BACKUP DOCTOR TO MEET STATE REQUIREMENTS AND REMAIN OPEN. 
STATE LAW REQUIRES THAT SUCH FACILITIES HAVE AN AGREEMENT WITH A NEARBY, PRIVATE HOSPITAL TO TRANSFER PATIENTS IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY OR GET AN APPROVED VARIANCE BY PROVIDING A LIST OF BACKUP DOCTORS IN CASE OF EMERGENCIES. THE STATE HEALTH DIRECTOR HAD MOVED TO RESCIND THE CLINIC'S VARIANCE AFTER BEING NOTIFIED LAST MONTH THAT ONE OF ITS BACKUP DOCTORS COULD NO LONGER SERVE. PLANNED PARENTHOOD TELLS THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH THE CLINIC HAS SINCE SECURED A FOURTH PHYSICIAN AND RE-FILED ITS REQUEST FOR A VARIANCE. THE CLINIC HAS REMAINED OPEN WHILE THE MATTER IS PENDING.
