Federal judge blocks Ohio ’heartbeat’ abortion law

A federal judge on Wednesday blocked Ohio from enforcing a new law that critics said would effectively ban most abortions in the state. District Judge Michael Barrett issued a preliminary injunction against enforcing the ’Heartbeat Protection Act’, saying it imposed an unconstitutional burden on a woman’s right to obtain a pre-viability abortion.

Where in the constitution does it mention abortions?

1. it's not a constitutional right. it is a court decision the really stretched the concept of the supposed right to privacy. it you want it to be in ther constitution pass an amendment. 2. they need legislation to start defining when a baby is a baby, rather than haphazard court cases. 3. I don't care if a heartbeat can be detected at 6 weeks, maybe before she knows she's pregnant. doesn't change the fact that a person is growing inside her.

HURRAY!!! Women MUST retain the RIGHT to murder their children! So glad we live in a society which rejects science for the sake of emotions! Now we need to work towards the recognition of women's rights to have fourth and fifth trimester abortions! Hashtag Murder Is A Woman's Right

It actually goes against the constitution, ‘the right to life’. Do those children not have a right to live??

Pretty sure "pre viability abortion" is not a legal term.

Another judicial activist. There will come a day that either we put them in camps or they do it to us. Make no mistake.

State law supercedes federal law. Even if that's not the case states can decide their own fate.
