Abortion Trigger Ban hearing scheduled – Protest scheduled 

Columbus, Ohio – The Trigger Ban, Senate Bill 123, has been scheduled for a hearing this week on Wednesday, September 29th at 9:30am. If passed, the Trigger Ban would immediately ban all abortion in Ohio if Roe v Wade is struck down. This is an increasingly likely scenario with the Supreme Court hearing their first case on abortion since the new conservatively packed court.

On Tuesday, September 28th at 12:30pm we are joining our partners to protest at the Ohio Statehouse. Abortion Justice Day of Action is taking place on September 28th which is International Safe Abortion Day

Statement from Aileen Day, Communications Director at Planned Parenthood Advocates of Ohio:

We’re showing up at the Ohio Statehouse to send a clear message to all legislators, that we refuse to sit idly by while our human rights and bodily autonomy continue to be legislated away. The Ohio General Assembly has spent the last decade dedicated to decimating our communities with barriers to health care, like the 30 abortion bans signed into law. These are attacks on our bodies, our families, and our communities. 

We cannot wait for another unfavorable court ruling or for an abortion ban to move for us to act. With the stark reality that Ohio could be the next state where abortion is entirely inaccessible, now is the time to show up and fight for our communities.”

From the beginning, Roe was the floor, not the ceiling. We need to go beyond Roe to eliminate all barriers to abortion care, including economic, racial, and immigration injustices that our communities’ ability to access the health care and resources they need not just to survive, but thrive.
