- A federal appeals court upheld an Ohio law that makes it illegal for a doctor to perform an abortion when medical tests show that the fetus has Down syndrome. The court ruled that the law does not impede a woman's right to an abortion. A similar law in Arkansas was declared unconstitutional earlier this year. This split in decisions could cause the US Supreme Court to take up the issue at some point.
