Returning for a fourth consecutive legislative session, the six-week abortion ban has yet-again been introduced.

As with previous versions, House Bill 258 would ban all abortions at the earliest detectable fetal heartbeat. This abortion ban would outlaw abortions just six weeks into a pregnancy, before many women even know that they are pregnant.
Over the years, this unconstitutional abortion ban has been rejected by the Ohio Senate, the Ohio House, blocked by federal appeals courts, denied by the US Supreme Court, and most recently, vetoed by John Kasich.
When a woman needs access to abortion care, her biggest concern shouldn’t be political maneuvering by state legislators or the governor. All she wants is to obtain an affordable, safe, and legal procedure in her community. Shame on any politician who steps in her way.
