Ohio Abortion Law Ruled Constitutional

It was reported in a story from Medical News Today that a federal judge in Cincinnati on Friday allowed abortion providers two weeks to comply with an abortion-related Ohio law (HB 421) -- which was passed in 1998 but never enforced. The law requires unmarried minors to obtain parental consent before seeking abortions as well as a 24-hour waiting period for any woman before undergoing the procedure. The law will take effect on Sept. 22 unless more litigation ensues in the U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals.
