Ohio House Health Committee Hears Testimony for Two Dangerous Anti-Abortion Bills 

COLUMBUS, OHIO - Today, the Ohio House Health Committee held hearings for two different anti-abortion bills; House Bill 90, the misinformation bill and Senate Bill 23, the Ohio Senate’s version of the six-week abortion ban.

Anti-abortion politicians in the Ohio Legislature continue to prioritize misguided legislative priorities by fast-tracking dangerous bills that aim to effectively outlaw abortion in Ohio and intentionally fails to equip the young people of this state with necessary, comprehensive sex education.

Statement from Lauren Blauvelt-Copelin, Vice President of Government Affairs and Public Advocacy, Planned Parenthood Advocates of Ohio:

“Both the misinformation bill and the six-week abortion ban are dangerous and do nothing to improve the health and safety of the people these state lawmakers, who support this legislation, were elected to represent and protect.

“It’s clear that extremist politicians will stop at nothing to ban abortion in Ohio. Rather than restricting health care access by outlawing abortion and creating unnecessary barriers to information, lawmakers should focus on providing schools resources that are needed to equip our young people with comprehensive, medically accurate sex education.”

Both of these bills are out of line with the majority of Ohioans who support access to the full range of reproductive health care, including safe and legal abortion. However, week after week these bills continue to get hearings, demonstrating anti-abortion politicians and lobbying groups’ obsession with legislating Ohio’s reproductive rights, health care, and education.
