The ACLU of Ohio is asking a federal court to permanently block a ban on abortion as early as six weeks into pregnancy. Pro-choice advocates had secured an order to temporarily stop the so called “heartbeat law” from going into effect as planned in July. Here's what is happening with the latest court filing.

A federal court has granted an injunction to prevent a new law restricting nearly all abortions from going into effect. The so called, “Heartbeat Bill,” which bans abortion at the point a fetal heartbeat can be detected, was set to go into effect next week.

The U.S. District Court in Cincinnati says Ohio’s congressional district map is unconstitutional. The court is telling Ohio lawmakers to draw a constitutional map by June 14 and if that doesn’t happen, the court will appoint a special master to do it so a new map would be in place for next year’s congressional election.

Ohio’s newest law that bans abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detected is supposed to go into effect in three months. But there’s a very good chance it won’t because there’s a legal challenge looming.
