Hearing Notice: Senate Bill 23, The Six-Week Abortion Ban

Next week, the Ohio Senate Health, Human Services & Medicaid Committee will hold a third hearing for opponent testimony on Senate Bill 23, the six-week abortion ban.    Hearing Details 3rd hearing on six-week abortion ban, opponent testimony Tuesday, February 26 3:00 pm (or after session) South Hearing Room of the Ohio Statehouse   Senate Bill 23 would criminalize doctors and ban abortion as early as six weeks – at a time before most women even know that they are pregnant. This extreme, dangerous, and cruel bill is a direct attack on reproductive health care access – and we need your help to stop it.
Here are 3 ways you can take action:
1.) Testify against the six-week abortion ban   Members of the Senate Health Committee need to hear from Ohioans who stand against this ban. At the next public hearing, on Tuesday, February 26 at 3:00 pm, opponents of the six-week ban will have an opportunity to present in-person testimony or submit written testimony. Testimony will need to be submitted 24-hours in advance of the hearing. Contact us if you are interested in testifying against the bill. 
2.) Attend Tuesday’s hearing at the Statehouse   On Tuesday, witnesses who support access to safe and legal abortion will be testifying before the committee to express their opposition to Senate Bill 23. The hearing on the six-week ban will begin at 3:00 pm or after session in the South Hearing Room. Join us at the hearing to show the legislators that Ohioans stand against this harmful bill.
3.) Contact your State Senator   Send a message to your State Senator: Stop The Bans. Use the letter-writing tool from our partners at NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio to send a message directly to your State Senator’s inbox telling them to stop the attacks on abortion access.
