Ohio Abortion Law Allowed to Proceed

From Gongwer News Service:

A federal appeals court Monday agreed to let two major provisions of a 1998 abortion regulation law go into effect while the panel reviews a lower court decision that found the measure constitutional.

The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rejected a motion from Cincinnati Women's Services to delay implementation of the measure (HB421, 122nd General Assembly).

Attorney General Jim Petro said the appellate action would allow two components of the law to take effect at 5 p.m. Oct. 10. Click here for a statement from the AG's Office.
