Ohio Anti-Abortion 'Heartbeat' Law Blocked By U.S. Judge

A federal judge issued a preliminary injunction blocking Ohio from enforcing an anti-abortion law, says Reuters.

Critics said the law could ban abortions as early as six weeks into pregnancy.

The judge said the “Heartbeat Protection Act” imposed an “undue burden” on a woman’s constitutional right to obtain a pre-viability abortion.

The law was signed by Republican Governor Mike DeWine in April.

The law was challenged by the American Civil Liberties Union and Planned Parenthood.
