COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Cincinnati's only abortion clinic has lined up a fourth backup doctor to meet state requirements and remain open, a clinic official said.

The state health director had moved to rescind the clinic's variance after being notified last month that one of its backup doctors could no longer serve.
