Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine joined his counterparts in fifteen states in asking the Supreme Court to consider prohibiting abortions in most cases after 20 weeks.

Ohio and Montana are the lead states in a brief filed with the Supreme Court in Horne v. Isaacson, a case abortion opponents feel could turn the tide in an ongoing battle to overturn Roe v. Wade. Joining Ohio and Montana in the filing are Alabama, Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas and Utah.

The case revolves around a 2012 law limiting abortion after twenty weeks unless the woman’s life or health is endangered. Three doctors who performed late-term abortions filed a lawsuit challenging the law. The suit was rejected by a federal district court in Arizona, but the appeals court overturned the decision.

An appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court was filed on September 27.
