Ohio’s abortion law that threatened clinics blocked again by a judge

Columbus, Ohio – A judge stopped an Ohio abortion law from taking effect because it had extra licensing requirements that the ACLU and Planned Parenthood thought were unnecessarily burdensome.

On Friday, Judge Alison Hatheway ruled that the Ohio Department of Health couldn’t put restrictions on two clinics in southwest Ohio before June 21, which would have been 90 days after the law’s effective date.

The law was temporarily blocked by Hatheway on March 2.

Provisions put on a so-called “born alive” abortion bill prohibited abortion clinics from entering into contracts with backup doctors who teach at or deal with public medical schools.
