Two Ohio abortion clinics allowed to stay open for now

Two Ohio abortion clinics allowed to stay open for now

CINCINNATI (AP) – A federal judge has ruled the last two abortion clinics in southwest Ohio can remain open while fighting to keep their state operating licenses.

Court documents show a federal judge in Cincinnati issued the preliminary injunction Tuesday. The clinics sought the ruling in their lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of abortion restrictions approved in the two most recent state budgets.
A NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio statement says those restrictions are medically unnecessary.

Ohio’s Department of Health informed Planned Parenthood of Southwest Ohio and Women’s Med Group in September that their Cincinnati and Dayton clinics’ variances were denied. The variances would grant state permission to operate without a required transfer agreement with a nearby hospital in emergencies.

Ohio attorney general’s spokesman Dan Tierney said Wednesday that they have no comment at this stage.
