Ohio Anti-Abortion 'Heartbeat' Law Blocked By U.S. Judge

A federal judge issued a preliminary injunction blocking Ohio from enforcing an anti-abortion law, says Reuters.

Critics said the law could ban abortions as early as six weeks into pregnancy.

The judge said the “Heartbeat Protection Act” imposed an “undue burden” on a woman’s constitutional right to obtain a pre-viability abortion.

The law was signed by Republican Governor Mike DeWine in April.

The law was challenged by the American Civil Liberties Union and Planned Parenthood.

The Numbers Don't Lie? Who's Publishing Poll Results, And Why

In the United States, if one political party is doing well, it tends to publish polls that say so. And according to CNN, the Democratic party is publishing an awful lot of polls these days. Democratic and liberal aligned groups have put out 17 House polls taken in April or later. However, Republican-aligned groups have put out zip, zilch, nada. Zero. That's a very bad ratio for Republicans. It hasn't always been that way, though.
