Republican Reps. Cheryl Grossman and Matt Lynch modeled the legislation after a federal bill (HR 3541) that was rejected by the U.S. House last month.
The Ohio bill would require health care providers to report suspected violations and would exempt women from liability for seeking the procedure (Siegel, Columbus Dispatch, 6/21).
