Ohio Abortion Law
In June, when the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, a law went into effect banning all abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected (around six weeks).
Currently, a lower court is challenging the law, restoring the original abortion ban. You can still legally obtain an abortion at 21 weeks and six days from the first day of your last period.
If you are under 18, a parent or legal guardian must give you permission to get an abortion in Ohio. If getting the consent of a parent or guardian is not an option for you, you can seek a judicial bypass.
Abortion is available at any point in the pregnancy to save the mother’s life.
