Training, educational forums, and workshops for NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio members and pro-choice constituents are conducted by the NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio Foundation. Key programs include: - AbortionAccessToledo, our initiative to “Keep Abortion Safe and Legal in Toledo.” ProMedica is currently refusing to sign a transfer agreement with Capital Care Toledo, the last remaining abortion clinic in Toledo. Even though Capital Care Toledo can transfer patients to a ProMedica hospital if necessary, the state requires an official transfer agreement between the abortion clinic and the hospital.
