Columbus — In response to the Ohio Senate vote on the six-week abortion ban, NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio Executive Director Kellie Copeland released the following statement: “While we continue the fight to prevent the six week abortion ban from becoming law, it is important for Ohioans to know that abortion clinics are still open in communities across our state. This bill still will have to be approved by the Ohio House, and signed by Governor DeWine to become law.
“Anti-choice Republicans are waging a misinformation campaign designed to prevent women from accessing abortion care. With six-week abortion bans pending in so many states, people need to know that abortion remains legally available at this time. Regardless of what happens in the coming days or months to come, NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio will always stand up for abortion access. This is about freedom and bodily autonomy—two things we will never surrender.”
