Local 12 News: How Supreme Court abortion ruling will impact Tri-State and what could happen next

Partisan divide in states on abortion will emerge, says UC Law center director

Abortion is still legal in Ohio for now though that may likely change. The U.S. Supreme Court’s 5-4 ruling reversing Roe v Wade, the landmark decision that granted federal protections to abortion access, now opens the door for states to limit or ban abortion.

Kentucky implanted a trigger law in 2019 so a ban on abortion is now in effect in the Bluegrass State, reports Local 12 News.

Jenn Dye, PhD, director of the Theodore M. Berry Director of the Nathaniel R. Jones Center for Race, Gender, and Social Justice, spoke with Local 12 News about what a partisan divide that will emerge with more conservative states opting to ban abortion or make it extremely hard to obtain.

Ohio could impose a ban before Election Day, reports Local 12 News.

“Predominantly red states moving to have special sessions to and enacting bills to ban it or to make it extremely difficult to get an abortion,” Dye told Local 12 News.
