Across the country, states are seeking to ban and eliminate access to abortion care. Unfortunately, this is also the case in Ohio. Although the climate in our state is hostile, with multiple legislative threats to ban abortion entirely, we are working to defend access to reproductive healthcare so that Ohioans can get the care they need in our state. Ensuring that people have access to the full spectrum of quality reproductive healthcare — from contraception to abortion, to prenatal and postpartum care — is critical for improving our health and providing people the ability to plan their futures and participate equally in our society.
As anti-abortion lawmakers try to strip away our rights, the ACLU of Ohio will be here fighting, no matter what, for people’s right to choose when and if they want to have children.
