Pro-Choice Ohio response to anti-abortion event

Columbus — In response to the anti-abortion event at the Ohio Statehouse today, Pro-Choice Ohio Executive Director Kellie Copeland released the following statement:

“Two out of three Ohioans oppose the six-week abortion ban. For the people who attended this rally, the six-week ban isn’t harsh enough. They want to ban abortion outright, even after seeing the horrific suffering that was caused by the six-week ban until a Hamilton County court stepped in to pause enforcement of this law. The complete lack of compassion for people who need access to abortion, whether because their birth control failed or they are facing a pregnancy complication, is astonishing, and completely out of touch with what Ohioans want.

“Ohioans who care about the wellbeing of people who need access to abortion must vote pro-choice up and down the ballot, from Nan Whaley for Governor to Jennifer Brunner, Marilyn Zayas, and Terri Jamison for the Supreme Court of Ohio. We cannot allow extremists like Mike DeWine, Dave Yost, and the anti-abortion members of the Supreme Court of Ohio to keep pushing their dangerous agenda on our state.”
