OHIO Gov. Mike DeWine (R) signs SB 23, which bans Buckeye State doctors from performing an abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detected, roughly six weeks into pregnancy. The measure would also allow for doctors who perform the procedure anyway to be prosecuted (CINCINNATI ENQUIRER).
ILLINOIS Medicaid officials announce they are developing rules to ensure coverage of gender-affirming surgeries for transgender adults who meet certain diagnostic criteria. The rules are expected to be revealed this summer (CNN).
NORTH DAKOTA Gov. Doug Burgum (R) signs HB 1546, a bill that makes it a crime for a doctor performing a second-trimester abortion to use instruments such as clamps, scissors and forceps to remove the fetus from the womb. Opponents say they will file suit to block the bill from going into effect (ASSOCIATED PRESS).
