Judge blocks abortion ban, poll shows tie in Senate race

Read Time:2 Minute, 33 Second

Nearly two out of three Ohioans would support an exemption to the state's abortion law for children under the age of consent.

Abortions are legal in Ohio until 20 weeks again, but they might not be for long. Polling data suggests the U.S. Senate race is tied while Gov. Mike DeWine has a commanding lead over Democrat Nan Whaley.

We break down what it all means on this week’s episode of Ohio Politics Explained.

It’s a podcast from the USA TODAY Network Ohio Bureau where we catch you up on the state’s political news in 15 minutes or less. This week, host Anna Staver was joined by statehouse bureau chief Anthony Shoemaker and Suffolk University pollster David Paleologos.

1) Judge suspends abortion ban

A Hamilton County judge has temporarily blocked Ohio’s law banning abortions once fetal cardiac activity is detected, which is about six weeks into pregnancy.

The restraining order means abortions up until about 20 weeks gestation will be legal for the next 14 days. During that time, Ohio’s attorney general will try to convince the judge that Ohio’s “heartbeat bill” should remain the law while this case works its way to the state Supreme Court.
