Planned Parenthood Will Ask Ohio Court to Uphold Abortion Rights

DeWine has already sought to lift an injunction defending women's rights

Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) said they plan to ask an Ohio court to uphold abortion rights in the state now that the US Supreme Court has eliminated the right at the federal level.

An Ohio law banning abortions after six weeks was put on hold in 2019 by a federal judge citing Roe v. Wade. Less than an hour after the Supreme Court overturned the landmark case, Republican Governor Mike DeWine and state Attorney General Dave Yost asked US District Judge Michael Barrett in Cincinnati to lift his injunction.

Planned Parenthood and the ACLU said in a statement that they plan to ask a state court to guarantee continuity of abortion care under the state constitution of Ohio.
