Planned Parenthood to close 2 Ohio health clinics

Tue, 09/10/2019 - 13:58

CINCINNATI (AP) — Planned Parenthood will close two Cincinnati health centers that together serve more than 6,000 patients a year.

The planned closure of the Springdale Health Center and Western Hills Health Center comes after the organization refused to follow new rules for receiving federal money for birth control and other reproductive health services.

Neither of the centers performs abortions.

The organization blames the federal and state policy changes for the centers having to close the health centers on Sept. 20.

The Trump administration began enforcing a "gag rule" in August, preventing entities receiving Title X dollars from recommending or advocating abortion.

Planned Parenthood decided not to comply with the federal rule and stopped accepting funding through the federal program that provides family planning help to low-income women and families.

Ohio show bans horses from counties in 7 states affected by virus

Tue, 09/10/2019 - 13:44

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Officials say horses from affected counties in seven states have been banned from participating in a Columbus horse show to protect livestock from contracting a viral disease.

The Ohio Department of Agriculture says next month's All American Quarter Horse Congress is not allowing horses from counties with confirmed or suspected cases of Vesicular Stomatitis (VSV).

The highly contagious virus has been detected in areas of Colorado, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah and Wyoming.

The disease primarily affects horses, but can also infect cattle, swine, sheep and goats. It causes lesions that burst, leaving open wounds. The most common method of transmission is insect bites.

Humans can contract the disease if they come into contact with lesions or secretions of infected animals.

The disease hasn't been found in Ohio.
