Press Release: Ohio Right to Life unveils new bills, NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio responds

Columbus — Ohio Right to Life issued a statement outlining their legislative agenda for the 132nd General Assembly. Their largely unconstitutional platform would continue to restrict access to abortion care for Ohio women.

NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio Executive Director Kellie Copeland said: “Ohio Right to Life doesn’t care about women’s health. There is not a single thing in their agenda that improves women’s health. In fact, the new restrictions they are proposing will interfere with the doctor patient relationship and prevent women from accessing the care that is best for themselves and their families. The goal of Ohio Right to Life is clear: to invoke shame and stigma against women who access abortion and to punish the medical professionals that care for them.

“This dangerous agenda underscores why it is imperative that Judge Neil Gorsuch not be confirmed to serve a life-time appointment to the US Supreme Court. Access to quality reproductive health care is a fundamental right and American value that was recently reaffirmed by the US Supreme Court in the Whole Women’s Health vs. Hellerstedt case. NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio is unrelenting in our mission to protect Ohio women from these dangerous attacks in Columbus and Washington.”
