COVID-19 Summary: This is an ongoing lawsuit regarding Ohio state legislation that would criminalize certain abortions that was amended to include a request for relief in light of COVID-19. The plaintiffs sought a temporary restraining order against the Department of Health's order which had banned all "non-essential surgeries and procedures" starting on March 18. The judge granted the temporary restraining order for a period of 14 days, which was affirmed by the Sixth Circuit on April 6. The judge granted a preliminary injunction on April 23, which allowed abortions in situations where a medical provider determined that a delay would not be possible.


On May 15, 2019 the plaintiffs, for-profit and non-profit providers of medical and surgical abortions in Ohio and their doctors, filed an initial complaint in the District Court for the Southern District of Ohio against the Ohio State Department of Health, the State Medical Board of Ohio, and various county prosecutors. They contested the Ohio State Legislature's 6-week abortion ban, passed on April 10 of that year. The plaintiffs, represented by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Ohio and the Planned Parenthood Foundation, sought a temporary restraining order, preliminary and permanent injunctive relief, and costs under 42 U.S.C. 1983 and 28 U.S.C. 2201.

Specifically, the plaintiffs alleged that Ohio S.B. 23, which would criminalize all abortions in which a fetal heartbeat can be detected (six weeks) except in cases that would jeopardize the health of the mother, would practically eliminate abortion in Ohio, because it often takes women longer than six weeks to determine that they are pregnant. They claimed that this violated the substantive due process precedent outlined in Roe v. Wade.

On May 24, the court related another case Preterm Cleveland v. Himes, but determined that each case should remain with its assigned judge.

Judge Michael R. Barrett granted the plaintiff's motion for a preliminary injunction on July 3, 2019 (394 F.Supp.3d 796), in advance of the statute's effective date of July 11. He stated that the plaintiffs were likely to succeed on the merits and enacting the ban would cause irreparable harm to Ohio women. Following this, the plaintiffs filed a motion for judgment on the pleadings on August 20, 2019.

Both parties filed motions and answers surrounding the motion for judgment on the pleadings until the plaintiffs filed an amended complaint on March 30, 2020, in response to the Ohio Department of Health's March 17 order. The order banned all "non-essential surgeries and procedures" to preserve personal protective equipment (PPE) starting on March 18 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The plaintiffs alleged that surgical abortions do not use a significant amount of PPE and that surgical abortions might be the only option for patients that are allergic to medical abortion pills. They also claimed that forcing patients to wait until the pandemic passed would not be sufficient, since abortion is a time-sensitive procedure. The order estimated the potential delay to be about eight weeks at minimum, but the order banning elective procedures was expected to possibly last up to a year. The complaint also added an equal protection claim that abortion providers were unfairly being singled out in comparison to other businesses. The plaintiffs moved for a temporary restraining order to block the Department of Health order and they sought the same relief requested in the initial complaint.

Judge Barrett granted the plaintiff's motion for a temporary restraining order against the Department of Health order on the same day (2020 WL 1932851). This temporary restraining order lasted for 14 days and was limited to situations where a medical provider decided that delaying a surgical abortion until after the pandemic subsided would not be possible. He denied a motion to stay the temporary restraining order filed by the defendants on April 2 (2020 WL 1932492).

The defendants filed an interlocutory appeal contesting the temporary restraining order on April 1. A Sixth Circuit panel, composed of Chief Judge R. Guy Cole and Judges Ralph B. Guy and John K. Bush declined to reverse the temporary restraining order on April 6 (2020 WL 1673310), saying that the narrow tailoring of the restraining order meant that not many abortions would be performed and PPE supplies would not be diminished. They stressed that the time sensitive nature of abortions justified this protection.

In order to preserve the status quo before ruling on the preliminary injunction, Judge Barrett extended the temporary restraining order for an additional two weeks on April 10, 2020 (2020 WL 1932540). Judge Barrett granted the plaintiff's motion for a preliminary injunction on April 23, 2020 (2020 WL 1957173). He noted that, while he did not want unnecessary medical procedures being performed in Ohio, waiting to have an abortion was not an option in certain circumstances. He limited the bounds of the preliminary injunction to situations where a medical provider determined that a delay would not be possible.

The case is ongoing.
