Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Thehill.com: “Ohio sues Biden over reversal of Trump-era abortion referral ban”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Ohio Attorney General David Yost (R) filed a lawsuit against the Biden administration on Monday seeking to restore a Trump-era ban on abortion referrals that the administration had overturned earlier in October.

As Yost's office specified in a release, the suit is not challenging the right to an abortion, but is instead seeking to reinstate two measures. 

The measures Yost is seeking to reinstate requires federally-funded family planning clinics to be "physically and financially independent of abortion clinics" and also mandates that they "refrain" from referring patients for abortions.

Earlier in October, the Biden administration rescinded the Trump-era measures, with the new rules set to go into effect beginning on Nov. 8. This decision by the White House restored the Title X program, from which federally funded family planning clinics receive funding, to how it operated between the years of 2000 and 2019.
