In the wake of the tragic events at UH Fertility Center, 700 families have been rocked to their core, and an entire nation is left wondering how in the world this could ever have happened? Although we cannot ever restore what was lost, we can fight for each individual family, and we can fight to be the catalyst for change in this rogue self-regulated industry.
By listening, understanding, and empathizing with each individual family, we are able to truly advocate for their individual wants, needs, and interests. We are able to give voice to their stories and their heartache. Although litigation is imminent for these 700 families, we are fighting for and demanding that this never happens again.
In Northeast Ohio, there is a state representative who feels the same way. Joe Schiavoni, state senator and current Ohio gubernatorial candidate, released a statement today that he will be holding a town hall in Newburgh Heights on Friday, March 26 at 6:oo pm (EST) “to hear from families impacted by recent fertility clinic incidents in Northeast Ohio and California, as well as all Ohioans who are concerned about these incidents and the current state of the fertility industry.“
Senator Schiavoni urged Ohioans to come to the town hall to weigh in on the current state of the fertility industry, their experiences, their worries, and their hopes for the future of this self-regulated industry.
“We need to figure out what’s going on so we can work to make sure it never happens again in our state. This town hall will give everyone a chance to come together and offer ideas” that Schiavoni can take at the state level.
His statement went on to say that “Members of the public are invited to attend and share their stories or their fears about the current lack of regulation over this industry” and he welcomes ideas for actions he can take at the state level.
In response to Senator Schiavoni’s statement, Peiffer Wolf Carr & Kane’s managing shareholder, Joseph Peiffer, said, “This state action is going to be the needed catalyst for change in a rogue industry with woefully inadequate oversight. Clearly, reliance on self-regulation isn’t working.” Peiffer continued, “We fully support Schiavoni’s mission to protect Ohioans, and, if sought, we will offer our full support and institutional knowledge of the fertility industry.”
Peiffer Wolf Carr & Kane attorneys Joe Peiffer, Lydia Floyd, and James Booker will be in attendance to show support, offer any knowledge, and answer any questions.
