This week, as Gov. Mike DeWine named a new director of the Ohio Department of Health, two separate legislative committees were hearing testimony on bills to ban abortion as early as six weeks. Here are video clips from some of the people who testified against this terrible abortion ban.
NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio Executive Director Kellie Copeland said: “In multiple committees, person after person has stepped forward and shared their personal experiences. Their stories have ranged from a young victim of human trafficking, to a graduate student facing an unintended pregnancy, to a woman confronting the heartbreaking news that her wanted pregnancy had gone terribly wrong. Each woman made the decision to terminate her pregnancy because it was the best decision for her based on her unique life circumstances. If Ohio enacts this ban, abortion will be effectively outlawed in our state, and women will suffer. Some may die.”
