COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) A federal judge blocked part of an Ohio law late Thursday that bans the abortion method of dilation and evacuation in most cases, adding to a list of restrictions on the procedure that are or soon could be in legal limbo.

Senior U.S. District Judge Michael Barrett in Cincinnati ordered the state not to bring criminal charges against doctors who perform the D&E procedure under most circumstances until the case can be fully litigated. Other parts of the law were allowed to proceed.

The ruling comes as the state's ban of abortions in cases involving a Down Syndrome diagnosis also is before the courts, and the ACLU plans a court challenge to a heartbeat abortion ban signed last week.

The ban on D&Es , the most common second-trimester abortion procedure, was signed by then-Gov. John Kasich last year. In Thursday's ruling, Barrett agreed with Planned Parenthood the law is likely to be declared unconstitutional because it places an undue burden on a "large fraction" of Ohio women.

1. Good on Judge Barrett.

There's got to be a limit to all this medieval nonsense.

2. Just send me the bill for legal fees.

Living in The Buckeye State I can help the religiously insane by paying a share of their costs for making a statement.
