On July 3, 2019, U.S. District Court Judge Michael Barrett stopped Ohio’s six week abortion ban from taking effect. Judge Barrett held “Plaintiffs are certain to succeed on the merits of their claim that SB 23 is unconstitutional on its face.” This is another victory for Ohio woman. If the law had gone into effect on July 11 it would have ended access to safe abortions across Ohio. “While this decision lets woman continue to have access to safe and legal abortions in Ohio, the legislature is on a path to ban abortion in Ohio. If woman want to continue to have access to abortion as part of their healthcare options, we need a constitutional amendment protecting this right,” said Jennifer L. Branch, one of the attorneys for the Plaintiffs in the case.
