Sixteen pro-life supporters gathered at a news conference at the former Center for Choice at noon today in central Toledo to celebrate the center's closing. 

The news conference, hosted by the Greater Toledo Right to Life, was also to celebrate what they described as Gov. John Kasich signing the most pro-life budget in Ohio's history into law Sunday. 

The center, which closed its doors June 7, could not find a local hospital that would enter into a transfer agreement with the clinic. State code requires a pact for the transfer of patients needing emergency treatment, with the new law prohibiting public hospitals from entering into transfer agreements.

There were no vocal protesters or pro-choice opposition at the event.
