Ohio’s First Abortion Company Closing Columbus Facility After Long Sordid History

A Columbus, OH abortion company, “Founders Women’s Health Center,” is shutting their doors at 1243 E. Broad St.  Founders was the first abortion center in Ohio after abortion was decriminalized in 1973.

“Founders” has a sordid past:

  • Killed thousands of babies – First and foremost, this abortion company has been murdering children for decades causing the deaths of thousands of innocent preborn children.
  • Tax Liens – “Founders Women’s Health Center” owes over one million dollars in taxes to the City of Columbus, State of Ohio, and the Federal Government (IRS).
  • A revoked hospital agreement – Grant Hospital revoked their transfer agreement with the abortion clinic.
  • An uninsured abortionist – Main abortionist has no medical malpractice insurance.
  • Overdue fines – Owes the Ohio Department of Health $40,000 in fines.
  • Injures women – One abortionist perforated the uterus of mother with a non-uterine pregnancy leaving her sterile.
  • Employed a known child sex offender - Dr. Tom Michaelis’ medical license was revoked after he pled guilty to sexual imposition. While employed by Founder’s Women’s Health Center, Michaelis was indicted by the US Attorney on federal child pornography charges.

In just five years,
7 abortion centers have closed in Ohio!

We are grateful for all the hundreds of activists who have prayed, protested and sidewalk counseled outside this abortion center over the decades.

“Abortion is a scourge on our families, our communities, and our moral consciousness. For nearly three decades, Ohio’s first abortion clinic was housed at 1243 E Broad Street, in a building co-owned by three of Ohio’s first abortion providers. The doors of that building are shutting. That is a good thing for this community.” – Beth Vanderkooi, Executive Director, Greater Columbus Right to Life
We are still gathering information about what next steps, if any, will be taken by this abortion company and will let you know of any further developments.

For the sanctity of human life,
Mark Harrington, President, Created Equal
