HuffPost: Jessie Hill, the Judge Ben C. Green Professor of Law, noted how state judges are already beginning to strike down abortion bans in Utah, Texas and Louisiana—as well as pending challenges at home, in Ohio. “Our state has a history of interpreting our constitution to be more protective of individual rights more than the federal constitution,” she said. “They’ve done this with the right to bear arms, they’ve done this with the free exercise of religion, they’ve done this with rights of criminal defendants, with rights to private property.”
