According to the ACLU of Ohio, a judge in Cincinnati said Friday that he will issue a preliminary injunction against a new Ohio law that forbids abortions as early as six weeks into a pregnancy.

The organisation issued a statement that read, “As a result of the verdict, abortion up to 22 weeks of pregnancy will remain legal while litigation continues.”

After Roe v. Wade was overturned by the US Supreme Court in June 2019, Senate Bill 23 went into effect. Except in cases of extreme medical necessity, the legislation prohibits abortions carried out after the discovery of early heart activity, which usually occurs about six weeks into a pregnancy, before many women are aware that they are expecting.

According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, Hamilton County Court of Common Pleas Judge Christian Jenkins agreed with the plaintiffs who claim that the legislation unfairly burdens expectant mothers. She’s having her opportunities limited by you. Her rights are being limited by you. According to the newspaper, Jenkins allegedly remarked, “You’re demoting her to a different position.

After Ohio abortion providers challenged SB 23 in the Hamilton County Court of Common Pleas, claiming that the law violates the state constitution, Jenkins had issued a temporary restraining order against the ban last month.

The plaintiffs stated in a statement on Friday that “Ohioans deserve far better than the chaos and confusion that we’ve experienced since the U.S. Supreme Court stripped us of our federal constitutional right to an abortion.” “We will continue to fight for and defend Ohioans’ rights as protected by the Ohio Constitution using every weapon at our disposal.”

Following a highly publicised case involving a 10-year-old Ohio rape victim who drove to Indiana for an abortion, Ohio’s abortion regulations have come under close examination recently.

Republican Dave Yost, the attorney general of Ohio, did not immediately state whether he intended to appeal the order.

According to spokesman Steven Irwin, “we will wait and analyse the judge’s actual written ruling and communicate with the Governor’s office as far as next measures.”

Following the US Supreme Court’s decision to eliminate the constitutional right to an abortion, laws that outright prohibit the operation or severely restrict it have taken effect in around a dozen states. A number of these states have seen legal challenges to abortion restrictions brought by pro-abortion activists and providers, some of which have resulted in temporary prohibitions being blocked.
