Judge Blocks Ohio Law Banning Abortions on Babies With Down Syndrome

An Ohio judge with close ties to Planned Parenthood blocked a state law Wednesday that protects unborn babies with Down syndrome from discriminatory abortions. U.S. District Court Judge Timothy Black issued a preliminary injunction against the law, arguing federal law is “crystal clear” that states may not prohibit abortions before viability, WOSU Radio reports.
