Planned Parenthood is suing Ohio, claiming it reinterpreted a fetal tissue disposal rule without notifying anyone and specifically to target Planned Parenthood.

The organization says in a federal lawsuit filed today that the Ohio Department of Health denied it equal protection and due process, according to Associated Press.

Attorney General Mike DeWine’s four month investigation into the activities of Planned Parenthood clinics in Ohio clears the organization of wrongdoing in one way but opens up questions about another practice. Ohio Public Radio’s Jo Ingles reports.

After the high profile videos that came out this summer that accused Planned Parenthood of selling fetal body parts, Attorney General Mike DeWine started an investigation into the organization’s three clinics statewide where abortions are performed.

  Invoking the words of President John F. Kennedy, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine spoke at the City Club of Cleveland Wednesday about the “unfinished business” of Ohio. For Ohio Public Radio,  WCPN's Annie Wu reports.

That “unfinished business,” according to DeWine, is the problem of at-risk kids, not just in urban areas but in every county in Ohio.

“There exists in this state today a very significant gap. It’s a chasm really. It’s a gap in opportunity.”
