WYSO Morning News Update for July 18, 2022, with Chris Welter:

  • New questions arise after 10-year-old rape case
    (State House News Bureau) - The story about the ten-year-old rape survivor from Ohio who traveled to Indiana for an abortion days after the state's so called heartbeat bill went into effect is grabbing national headlines. The law bans abortions when a "fetal heartbeat" can be detected, which could be as early as six weeks into a pregnancy. Now lawyers are realizing that questions about whether or not a narrow exception in the new law could have been applied in the girl’s case are not easy to answer.
  • College Hill town hall meeting
    (WYSO) - A town hall meeting about development at the former site of Good Samaritan hospital is tonight. Premier Health's CEO will speak at the meeting. It's at College Hill Church in Dayton and starts at 6:30 p.m. tonight.
