KETTERING, Ohio (AP) - An abortion provider has asked the Ohio Supreme Court to reverse a lower court ruling that would force it to close.

The Women’s Med Center in Kettering made the request after the top court refused to hear an appeal from the clinic in August.

The state’s Department of Health in 2016 ordered the clinic to close because it can’t obtain a written patient-transfer agreement from local hospitals. The Dayton Daily News reports the clinic is the Dayton area’s only remaining abortion provider.

Clinic supporters say the transfer rules are not medically needed and appear to be politically motivated.

Jennifer Branch, co-counsel for Women’s Med Center, says the state’s response is due Sept. 13 and the Supreme Court should rule within two months.
