Complaint against Fort Wayne abortion clinic filed with Civil Rights Division of Department of Justice

July 9, 2012

Fort Wayne, IN – Today Cathie Humbarger, executive director of Allen County Right to Life in Fort Wayne, Indiana, filed a personal complaint against the Fort Wayne Women’s Health Organization with the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice, alleging non-compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The complaint is based on Humbarger witnessing women leaving the Fort Wayne Women’s Health Organization on numerous occasions, in apparent discomfort and unable to walk unassisted after the invasive medical procedure known as abortion. Fort Wayne Women’s Health Organization reports performing hundreds of abortions at this location annually, and these women are required to walk down steps to exit the building. There are also no parking places reserved for the handicapped.

“When women leave this facility, they oftentimes have their arms over two people as they limp to their car,” Humbarger says. “It appears to me that their physical condition should really have necessitated being transported in a wheelchair, but that is not available to them since there is no wheelchair ramp at the facility. My heart breaks for the women who make the choice to have an abortion. I care about these women and the lack of proper care after their procedure is alarming to me.” Humbarger notes “Almost without exception, local buildings – from churches to strip clubs – are required to have wheelchair access. Why should the Fort Wayne Women’s Health Organization – an abortion facility – get a pass?”

Additionally, the lack of wheelchair access is an impediment to any wheelchair bound persons wishing to enter or exit the building.
