Following the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, a pro-choice protester in Columbus, Ohio, holds a sign.

A court in Ohio invalidated the state’s limitation on abortions after the sixth week, restoring women’s access to abortion services.

Senate Bill 23 was signed into law in June of this year, just after the Supreme Court decided to reverse its earlier judgment in Roe v. Wade.

Once heart activity is detected in the sixth week of pregnancy (before many women know they’re pregnant), abortion is illegal unless needed to cure a life-threatening condition.

Judge’s decision restores access to abortion up to 20 weeks after conception (or roughly 22 weeks after a patient’s last menstrual cycle).

The plaintiffs have asked the court for a preliminary injunction, and the court has granted a temporary restraining order that will be in effect for a period of fourteen days.

“S.B. 23 violates Ohio’s Equal Protection and Benefit Clause because it discriminates against pregnant women,” said Judge Christian A. Jenkins.

“S.B. 23 clearly discriminates against pregnant women and places an enormous burden on them to secure safe and effective health care,” the judge wrote.

On September 2, Ohio abortion providers filed a fresh lawsuit against Senate Bill 23, saying that the measure violates the state constitution.

The court received the complaint. The groups dropped their petition when the state supreme court declined to stop the bill’s implementation.

We may breathe a sigh of relief knowing that Ohioans, at least for the time being, have unfettered access to abortion care inside their own state.

On the other hand, we are just at the start of things here. Plaintiffs and litigators issued a united statement in which they declared,

“We have already observed the terrible impact that Senate Bill 23 has had on those seeking abortions in the state of Ohio.”

A 10-year-old Ohio rape victim who came to Indiana for an abortion has highlighted Indiana’s abortion rules. Indiana abortion.

Preterm-Cleveland, one of the plaintiffs in this lawsuit, stated it would continue abortion services as long as it’s legally allowed to.
