gavel with Lady of JusticeThough hardly a day goes by without a judge or court striking down a pro-life law, Ohio's got good news.

Abortion numbers in Ohio are the lowest they have been since documentation started after Roe v. Wade. Allie Frazier, director of communications at Ohio Right to Life, sees several different factors contributing to the decrease.

"There are a lot more support systems in place than there were previously in terms of taking care of women who might find themselves in unplanned pregnancy, which is great," she cheers. "We actually have a lot less clinics now as well."

In terms of court challenges to things such as a heartbeat bill, Frazier is glad to see measures make it to court.

"Our big goal is to have a case that will challenge Roe v. Wade," she tells OneNewsNow.

The U.S. Supreme Court says it will hear arguments over Louisiana's law requiring abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals. That case could overturn a 2016 decision against what has been described as a similar law in Texas.

Meanwhile, Mississippi's heartbeat bill is currently at the Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. That would ban most abortions after a baby's heartbeat is detected. Several other states have passed similar measures.
