When yet again, the Ohio Office of Wellness tried out to enforce limitations on two Southwest Ohio abortion clinics early. And as soon as all over again, a Hamilton County judge blocked those attempts. 

Senate Invoice 157, signed by GOP Gov. Mike DeWine in December, provides restrictions to surgical abortion clinics that operate less than exemptions to state law, targeting Mount Auburn’s Prepared Parenthood of Southwest Ohio and Dayton’s Women’s Med.

The law took result on March 23 but clinics have until June 21 to comply with the new regulations, which contain not making use of medical doctors with ties to health care educational institutions affiliated with state colleges or universities. 

That’s a difficulty for Women’s Med, whose doctors function at Wright State University’s Boonshoft School of Drugs, in close proximity to Dayton. The Ohio Department of Wellbeing has commenced to rescind a variance that permits Women’s Med to function.
