The abortion ban has been making a lot of headlines in the US lately, as you probably know by now. Recently, an Ohio judge made an important decision that has triggered a lot of fuss, and you can check out the details below.
A judge in Ohio makes an important decision about the abortion ban
According to the latest reports, an Ohio judge on Wednesday temporarily blocked Ohio’s ban on abortions after six weeks of pregnancy.
The judge is handing abortion providers a rare legal victory over the controversial medical procedure following the overturning of Roe vs. Wade.
According to official reports, the temporary injunction allows medical professionals to immediately resume performing abortions under the state’s old law that permitted the procedure up to 22 weeks of pregnancy.
“While the injunction lasts at least the next 14 days, abortion providers have called on the court to make the block a preliminary injunction amid ongoing litigation over the law, known as Senate Bill 23,” the notes reveal.
“We’re grateful that, for now, Ohioans can, once again, widely access abortion care in their own state. But this is the first step.”
This is what the state abortion providers and their legal representation, including the American Civil Liberties Union, said in a joint statement
The judge concluded by saying the following:
“We remain intensely committed to defending against any and all attempts to limit Ohioans’ constitutional right to access the full range of reproductive health care in their home state.”
