Abortion clinics

Jo Ingles / Ohio Public Radio

The mass shooting at an abortion clinic in Colorado that killed four people, including one police officer, late last month is the latest example pro-choice activists say underscores why more needs to be done to protect those facilities. As Ohio Public Radio’s Jo Ingles reports, there’s a new bill in the Ohio legislature that would create protective barriers around those facilities.  

The Ohio Department of Health has granted a Cincinnati abortion clinic permission to continue operating despite not having a required transfer agreement with a nearby hospital for emergencies.

A federal judge has ruled the last two abortion clinics in southwest Ohio may remain open while fighting to keep their state operating licenses.

Two last-minute amendments to the Ohio Senate's version of the two-year state budget bill could force abortion clinics in Toledo and Dayton to close.
