Ohio Attorney General Yost files for 6-week abortion ban as Roe is overturne
Ohio Capital Journal, Susan Tebben & Nick EvansJune 24, 2022

As Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost filed court motions to enact Ohio’s six-week abortion ban, a motley bunch of protesters gathered near the Ohio Statehouse on Friday in a tiny sliver of shade cast by the William McKinley statue.

They held signs declaring “abortion is healthcare” or “abortion is a human right.” Another read “our democracy, it is broken.”

Cheri Wells stood next to her one-year-old daughter, Lux, who was strapped into a stroller.

“I brought my daughter down here because this absolutely has everything to do with her, too,” she said.
