Pursuant to the Ohio Revised Code Section 2317.56, the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) must publish a fetal development guide and material about alternate providers to assist a woman through her pregnancy. The law also requires any physician, at least 24 hours prior to the performance or inducement of an abortion, to provide the pregnant woman with the fetal development guide and with the material about alternate providers.

These materials are available upon request while supplies last.  For your convenience, the Fetal Development and Resource Directory are now available on-line.
