Protecting Abortion Access
The Ohio Democratic Women’s Legislative Caucus recently issued the following statement in response to Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost’s attempt to close down abortion clinics during the coronavirus crisis:
“During an emergency, there is always a chance of government overreach under the guise of ‘security’ or adherence to ‘law and order.’ In times of national crisis, we have seen egregious acts that have circumvented our freedoms before. And make no mistake — we are seeing them today. Right now an opportunistic Attorney General is seizing on a moment of public vulnerability to push his political agenda. This is a strategic attack on women and a calculated political maneuver intended to strip away our legal right to abortion care at the most uncertain of times. AG Yost’s actions are despicable.”
NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio is emphasizing that abortion clinics in the state are still OPEN and they are complying with public health orders from the state. Click here to find out more.
