Ohio: Parliament adopts the law banning abortion after 6 weeks

Publié le 25 Mar, 2015

On Wednesday, Ohio Parliamentarians adopted a draft bill, by 55 votes to 40, aimed at banning abortion six weeks after conception, i.e. the time at which a foetal heart beat can first be detected.


Any doctor carrying out an abortion after 6 weeks will be found guilty of a fifth degree crime and sentenced to one year in prison plus a fine of €2,500.


However, “this draft law is unlikely to go further as it is fiercely opposed by the Senate“.
