Law’s Jessie Hill comments on possible state responses to Issue 1

Ohio Capital JournalJessie Hill, the Judge Ben C. Green Professor of Law, said the state could agree that the six-week abortion ban law is now unenforceable—since the passage of Issue 1—but she is prepared for the alternative. “This gives us a new claim we can add into our pending litigation, and we can fight it out from there if the state insists on trying to defend its laws,” Hill said. “But we are now in a very strong position based on the new amendment.”
