The American Civil Liberties Union and other abortion rights groups have won a ruling from a lower court in Ohio that has indefinitely blocked the state’s ban on terminating pregnancies after six weeks.

In the meantime, as litigation over the ban continues, abortions up to 22 weeks of pregnancy remain legal in Ohio.

Abortion rights groups and women’s health centers, including Planned Parenthood and Preterm-Cleveland, hailed the court’s decision, calling it a “major victory”.

The injunction comes after a temporary restraining order that had blocked the state’s ban on abortion after six weeks but could have been removed at the time of Friday’s ruling.

“We are thrilled … and relieved that patients in Ohio can continue to access abortion as we work to fight this unjust and dangerous ban in court,” the groups said in a joint statement.

This court ruling will provide significant relief to Ohio patients and clinics.”.

Since then, more than 26 states have prohibited or severely limited access to abortion, or were expected to do so. »
