As the Supreme Court deliberates on the Mississippi abortion case known as Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, many are left wondering what the decision could mean for the landmark case Roe v. Wade.

Abortion has been front and center for many states, including Ohio. State House Republicans approved a bill Wednesday that would strengthen Ohio’s abortion manslaughter laws. The legislation now goes to Gov. Mike DeWine’s desk for his signature.

The bill would require doctors to preserve the health of a child born alive after abortion was approved by the Ohio House. Abortion rights advocates decried the bill, saying it’s not backed by science. The bill comes as abortion opponents are attempting to overturn long-standing U.S. Supreme Court precedent allowing unfettered access to abortions in the first 20 weeks of pregnancy.

In 2020, 20,605 abortions were induced in the state of Ohio, according to Ohio Department of Health. Of those, 61% were performed in the first nine weeks of pregnancy. The state reported that 441 abortions were performed after 19 weeks, with all 441 pregnancies being deemed “nonviable.”

Professor Jessie Hill, a constitutional law expert at Case Western Reserve University, sat down with Spectrum News to discuss the possible consequences of the Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization case and the impact it could have on Ohio residents. Watch the full interview above for more details.
