Full Case Title: 

Women's Medical Professional Corp. v. Voinovich, 130 F.3d 187 (6th Cir. 1997)


  • Reproductive Rights
  • Joined Amicus Brief


This case concerned an Ohio law banning a post-viability abortion procedure. The Sixth Circuit ruled that the law prevented women from choosing to have an abortion due to medical necessity and was thus unconstitutional. The court also found other portions of the law unconstitutionally vague.
