Hold on Ohio Abortion Restriction to Last at Least Two More Weeks

Hamilton County Court of Common Pleas Judge Christian Jenkins (D) this week indicated he will extend his hold on a significant Ohio abortion-restricting law for two additional weeks.

The state General Assembly passed and Governor Mike DeWine (R) signed the bill (SB 23) in 2019.

Wade decision that legalized abortion nationwide.
