Is abortion legal in Ohio?

Yes! Abortion is currently legal in Ohio up through 21 weeks and 6 days gestation. Gestation is determined from the first day of your last period. You can use Abortion Finder to both determine gestation and to find a nearby clinic that can help you at that gestation. 

If you thought abortion was banned at 6 weeks in Ohio, you're not alone! Many folks don't know that a judge blocked Ohio's 6-week abortion ban in court in 2022. That block is only temporary, but for now, Ohioans can access abortion at or before 21.6 weeks.

About Abortion Fund of Ohio & the National Network of Abortion Funds

Abortion Fund of Ohio (formerly Women Have Options (WHO/O)) is Ohio’s statewide abortion fund. Founded in 1992, we are an organization dedicated to helping Ohioans afford their reproductive choices. We believe that everyone should be able to make their own reproductive decisions—and we work to make that a reality in Ohio. We are a founding member of the National Network of Abortion Funds, which includes more than 100 abortion funds around the United States and overseas.

What We Do

We provide financial assistance and practical support (transportation, housing, and more) to help patients afford contraception, emergency contraception, and abortion services. We distribute funds to clinics throughout Ohio. These clinics, in turn, use the funds to provide financial assistance to those in need. Since 1992, Abortion Fund of Ohio has helped thousands pay for their reproductive choices.
