On October 7, the Hamilton County Court of Common Pleas announced that it will grant abortion providers’ and advocates’ request for a preliminary injunction (PI) against Senate Bill 23 (SB 23), a law banning abortion at approximately six weeks of pregnancy in Ohio. The court had initially issued a temporary restraining order on September 14, allowing abortion services to resume in the state. As a result of the ruling, abortion up to 22 weeks of pregnancy will remain legal while litigation continues.

“Today we will celebrate this win in the battle for bodily autonomy and health care for all, but our work is far from over. We're fighting for an Ohio where abortion access does not depend on your zip code or income, and we will always stand with the patients who turn to Planned Parenthood health centers for essential abortion care. While this is a vitally important first step, it is up to us to push for bold solutions to ensure a future where reproductive freedom is a reality for all,” shared Iris Harvey, CEO and President of Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio, and Kersha Deibel, CEO of Planned Parenthood of Southwest Ohio, in a joint statement.
