NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio Foundation is a sister organization that provides public education to support the NARAL mission. Contributions to NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio Foundation are tax deductible to the fullest extent permitted by law.
Training, educational forums, and workshops for NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio members and pro-choice constituents are conducted by the NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio Foundation. Key programs include:
- AbortionAccessToledo, our initiative to “Keep Abortion Safe and Legal in Toledo.” ProMedica is currently refusing to sign a transfer agreement with Capital Care Toledo, the last remaining abortion clinic in Toledo. Even though Capital Care Toledo can transfer patients to a ProMedica hospital if necessary, the state requires an official transfer agreement between the abortion clinic and the hospital.
- Campaign for Contraceptive Coverage, an initiative that advocates for insurers to cover birth control the same way they do other prescriptions. Too many Ohio insurance policies fail to cover the five most commonly used methods of birth control. This campaign calls on employers, insurers and the state legislature to guarantee equitable coverage for contraception.
- EC in the ER. We are conducting a survey of every hospital emergency room in Ohio to find out if they make Emergency Contraception available to their patients. We are especially interested in whether or not hospitals provide EC to survivors of sexual assault. Once the survey is complete, we will publish the results. We will continue our work to educate the public about EC and to make EC more accessible.
