Doctors Protest Ohio Six-Week Abortion Ban: ‘Greatest Assault on Women’s Rights in Our Lifetime’

When the Supreme Court reversed Roe v. Wade, the Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost moved quickly to enforce the state’s six-week abortion ban. Shortly after, a 10-year-old rape victim who was six weeks and three days pregnant was denied an abortion in Ohio, forcing the girl to travel out of state for necessary medical care to end the pregnancy.

Ohio Physicians for Reproductive Rights released an open letter signed by over 1,000 doctors in the state protesting the dangerous ban.
