Bill Would Ban Abortion in Ohio if SCOTUS Overturns Roe v. Wade

Only abortions saving a woman's life or preventing substantial, irreversible harm would be allowed

A state lawmaker is introducing legislation that would ban abortion in Ohio if the Supreme Court overturns the landmark Roe v. Wade decision.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports eight states have similar laws that would take effect after a U.S. Supreme Court decision.
