A new clinic on Columbus’s north side is providing women’s health services, including medication that causes abortions. Some, including anti-abortion advocates, are calling it an abortion clinic. The organization that lobbies on behalf of abortion providers says it isn’t.

Columbus has passed a law setting up a “buffer zone” around its two abortion clinics, keeping protestors at least 15 feet away and increasing the penalties for violators who commit disorderly conduct. 

Ohio Right to Life’s Mike Gonidakis says he’s holding out for the American Civil Liberties Union to do something about the ordinance.
