Two abortion businesses in Ohio were fined a combined total of $12,500 for dumping private patient information and the remains of aborted babies.

The Ohio Department of Health (ODH) ordered Northeast Ohio Women's Center to pay $7,500. Planned Parenthood Bedford Heights was ordered to pay $5,000.

Matthew Connolly, a homeless man who maintains relationships with pro-life organizations, found the information and remains while searching through dumpsters for food. Documents showing the names, dates of birth, phone numbers, and addresses of patients were found among the medical waste. At Northeast Ohio Women's Center, Connolly found the body of a baby girl aborted at 17 weeks. Pro-life advocates later held a burial ceremony for the girl, whom they named Gianna-John.

“These violations show how little abortion facilities really care about patient privacy,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “They act like abortions should be more private than our nuclear secrets, especially when they injure a woman during an abortion. But in their daily practices, they treat women’s names and medical health information with callous disregard.”
