Columbus — With a federal court halting the enactment of Substitute Senate Bill 23, abortion providers will continue to provide high quality abortion care across the state. The complaint was filed by ACLU of Ohio, in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio.
NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio Deputy Director Jaime Miracle said: “The most important thing that Ohioans need to know is that abortion access is available in Ohio. When a person has decided to have an abortion, they should be able to access that care safely, affordably, in their community, with support and respect, not shame or pressure. With Gov. DeWine’s attack on abortion rights now blocked, the doctors, nurses, staff, and volunteers at nine facilities across the state can continue to assist patients in safely terminating a pregnancy. People needing information on abortion care can visit ProChoiceOhio.org/clinics/.”
