Abortion Clinic Can Stay Open During Appeal
A judge will allow a suburban Cincinnati abortion clinic to remain open as it appeals a state closure order.
Hamilton County Judge Jerome Metz’s Friday decision follows arguments from the Lebanon Road Surgery Center of Sharonville and the Ohio Attorney General’s Office.

Under the state’s order, the clinic would have had to close Thursday.
It will now be allowed to remain open as it appeals the state’s order to close.
