The Ohio legislature has passed a bill banning abortions after 20 weeks, and now it heads to Gov. John Kasich (R) for his signature. HB 78 only “allows abortions in the case of immediate and permanent endangerment of a woman’s life, and has no exceptions for cases of health issues or abortions for fetuses with severe medical issues.”
