Planned Parenthood Statement on Anti-Abortion “Trigger Ban” Introduced in Ohio Senate

Columbus, Ohio – Today, anti-abortion extremists in the Ohio Senate introduced a bill to ban all abortions if the United States Supreme Court overturns Roe vs. Wade.

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

“Anti-abortion extremists are at it again. S.B. 123 is the latest egregious attack on abortion access from leaders in the Ohio General Assembly who are only focused on eliminating legal access to abortion, to the neglect of everything else – including the pandemic. Ohioans deserve better. Ohioans deserve lawmakers who are focused on making their lives better, not restricting their access to care.

‘Trigger’ bans like these are not about protecting people – they are about taking away access and spreading misinformation. We cannot and will not accept a world where safe, legal reproductive health care depends on where you live.”


Planned Parenthood Advocates of Ohio supports advocacy for reproductive health and reproductive rights, including grassroots organizing, community education, and lobbying. www.ppao.org
