Welcome to “The Quickie” — Planned Parenthood Action Fund’s daily tipsheet on the top health care & reproductive rights stories of the day. You can read “The Quickie'' online here.

In today’s Quickie: Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio celebrates the grand jury’s decision on the case against Brittany Watts and former PPSENFL CEO urges Florida voters to take back their reproductive rights.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD OF GREATER OHIO CELEBRATES THE DECISION TO END CASE AGAINST BRITTANY WATTS: Yesterday, an Ohio grand jury declined to indict  Brittany Watts, who had been charged by local with a felony crime after a miscarriage. Dennis Watkins, the Trumbull County prosecutor who advised the grand jury ahead of its decision, said his office believed Watts "did not violate the Ohio Criminal Statue of Abuse of a Corpse as alleged.”

“We are elated that the grand jury declined to return an indictment and that Brittany Watts will not face criminal prosecution for her miscarriage,” said Erica Wilson-Domer, President & CEO of Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio. “This case shows what can happen when politicians try to invade our bodily autonomy with medically unnecessary restrictions. Pregnancy loss happens to millions of people every year and is a private medical issue that should be between the patient and health care provider, not lawmakers. Our thoughts are with Brittany as she moves forward from the trauma caused by attempts to criminalize her miscarriage."

FORMER PLANNED PARENTHOOD OF SOUTH, EAST, AND NORTH FLORIDA CEO URGES FLORIDA VOTERS TO RECLAIM THEIR REPRODUCTIVE FREEDOM: In a new op-ed in the Palm Beach Post, Lillian Tamayo, the former President and CEO of Planned Parenthood of South, East, and North Florida, urges Florida voters to take back their abortion rights. She reflects on the fall of Roe and the swift response from the 21 states that have already banned or restricted access to abortion. In Florida, the looming state Supreme Court decision on the state’s abortion ban highlights the urgency of putting abortion on the ballot in November. 

Tamayo explains: “Polls have repeatedly indicated the majority of Floridians favor the right to make their own personal decision regarding their care – whether it’s a Democrat, a Republican or an Independent….What Floridians are not “confused” about is that the DeSantis administration and the tone-deaf Florida legislature will do anything to block the will of voters”.
