Representatives in the Ohio legislature could pass the most extreme abortion ban in the country. It's a bill that would ban abortion at just six weeks and the Ohio State House could vote any day now.

At 6 weeks, many women don't even know they're pregnant.This bill would take away a woman's right to make her own medical decisions, before she even knows she has decisions to make.

If this bill passes, it will set a dangerous precedent. This is an unjust, unconstitutional, simply unconscionable effort to strip women of the right to make their own personal medical decisions — and these Ohio lawmakers are hoping to force it into law before the end of the year. Ohio House Speaker William Batchelder has enormous sway over the Ohio State House, and he can help stop the bill. 

The vote could come up quickly, so we need you take action. Add your name to the petition to Batchelder: Reject the 6-week abortion ban!

We've stopped these outrageous bills before, and with your help we will stop this bill today.
