TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - A group of anti-abortion organizations want to turn the former site of an abortion clinic into a memorial garden for the unborn.

The site near downtown Toledo was sold earlier in October, but plans for the garden aren’t set yet.

The abortion clinic was shut down last year by the state because it lacked a mandatory emergency transfer agreement with a hospital.

Mike McCartney, board president of Foundation for Life and Greater Toledo Right to Life, tells the Blade (https://bit.ly/1wODYRz ) newspaper that the building would be razed to create a garden and green space.

The organization’s executive director says the garden would be a place to pay respects to babies who died at the site.



The founder of the now-closed clinic says tearing down the building is a bad idea.
