This week, Randi, Jaime, and Gabe discuss the latest hearing to defund Planned Parenthood in Ohio (yes, another bill). This week, the Ohio House committee on Community and Family Advancement heard testimony from witnesses opposed to the plan to ban Planned Parenthood from administering programs using public grant money. The grants fund HIV/AIDS testing, breast & cervical cancer screenings, infant mortality reduction, infertility treatment, assistance for rape survivors, and comprehensive sex education for youth in foster care and juvenile detention. All of these programs would be cut.
NARAL’s The Morning After is a production of NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio.
Help build a pro-choice Ohio. Every day, NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio fights to protect access to the full range of reproductive health care options—including preventing unintended pregnancy, bearing healthy children, and safe & legal abortion care. We educate the public about the real threat to women’s healthcare posed by anti-choice legislation and policies. We mobilize pro-choice Ohioans to take political action to defend reproductive rights. And we are the voice for Ohio’s abortion clinics, helping them navigate the increasingly hostile climate created by extremist groups. But we need your help. As a member organization, we rely on your financial support to fund our important legislative, educational, and grassroots activities.
