Ohio Judge Issues Preliminary Injunction Against Ohio Telemedicine Abortion Ban

Hamilton County Court of Common Pleas Judge
Allison Hatheway
On April 19, an Ohio judge from the Hamilton County Court of Common Pleas issued a preliminary injunction that prevents the state of Ohio from enforcing its ban against telemedicine distribution of the abortion pill regimen.

Judge Allison Hatheway issued the injunction after initially granting a temporary restraining order on April 13. Hatheway is the same judge who issued a temporary restraining order blocking an Ohio law that requires abortion businesses to treat the bodies of aborted babies with respectful burial or cremation, rather than treating them as medical waste.

Ohio Governor signed the telemedicine abortion ban into law on Jan. 9, and it was set to go into effect on April 12, but now it will have to survive a battle in court.

“We believe that this decision is rooted in politics—not women’s health or safety,” said Mike Gonidakis, President of Ohio Right to Life. “The state of Ohio has a vested interest in ensuring that Planned Parenthood and their abortion allies cannot skirt common sense safeguards to increase their bottom line. The abortion industry is not above the law and the women of Ohio deserve to be safe.”
