We just received notice that the judiciary is NO longer meeting on Tuesday, May 23rd to have a hearing on bill… We will keep the event in place for when the hearing is rescheduled and will update everyone date and time.
The Ohio State Legislature continues to chip away at abortion access and reproductive healthcare in our home state.
In the next few weeks the Senate will be holding the first hearing on SB 145 (aka the Method Ban), which is a ban on D&E (Dilation & Evacuation) — i.e. the MOST common method of abortion in the second trimester. This ban WILL severely limit women's access to abortion in Ohio. Bill sponsors are Republican Sens. Matt Huffman of Lima and Steve Wilson of Maineville.
We're calling on our supporters to help fill the Senate hearing room to remind Republican Senators that we're watching and we're not going to sit back idly while elected officials play politics over essential reproductive healthcare.
Meet us at the State Street side steps to head into the Senate together. Be sure to wear pink to show your proud support of Planned Parenthood. Organizer will bring additional shirts for folks who don't have one yet! #OHStandsWithPP
