Ohio Supreme Court Considers Procedural Issues in Appeal of Decision Striking Down Six-Week Abortion Ban
Some of my thoughts on the pending procedural appeal in the case declaring Ohio's six-week abortion ban unconstitutional are included in Eric Heisig, Abortion Case Pits Ohio Against Doctors Suing to Treat Patients, Bloomberg.
For more details and history of this case, go to Court News Ohio, Oral Argument Previews. Oral arguments are Wednesday, Sept. 27 and are livestreamed by the Court.
In other Ohio news, the Supreme Court upheld the secretary of state's revision of the proposed ballot language for the pro-choice constitutional amendment, changing the word "fetus" to "unborn child." See Ohio Abortion Rights Activists Suffer Blow in Suit Over Referendum Language.
