Ohio Bill Could Make Abortion A Felony Punishable By Death

Ohio Bill Could Make Abortion A Felony Punishable By Death

“Ohio just took us one step closer to becoming a forced-birth nation,” #VOTEPROCHOICE CEO & co-Founder Heidi Sieck told Refinery29. “Legislators in Ohio are banning abortion before women even know they’re pregnant — and we must stand up and speak out against this dangerous bill.”

“The confirmation process of Brett Kavanaugh is a fight for the moral compass of our nation and the kind of government we want to have for generations to come. We must learn from the mistakes of 1991, when both Republicans and Democrats shamed, demeaned, and ignored Anita Hill for speaking up about sexual harassment by Clarence Thomas,” said Heidi Sieck, coalition organizer and cofounder of #VOTEPROCHOICE.

“Conservatives on the Senate Judiciary Committee have scheduled confirmation hearings for Brett Kavanaugh on September 4 — 6 before the next Supreme Court session starts on October 1. Their goal is clear: to confirm this Supreme Court Justice so they can control our bodies, to let this President get away with anything, and to change the course of our country for generations to come. We cannot let them win.”

#VOTEPROCHOICE: TRUMP NOMINEE POSES GRAVE THREAT TO OUR REPRODUCTIVE FREEDOM

We must fight to protect reproductive freedom as if our lives depend on it—because they do. The end of Roe v. Wade will not mean an end to abortion—only an end to safe abortion. We have seen what happens when abortion is illegal: lives are lost, bodies are mangled, families are destroyed, and most of all, women are controlled. The upcoming midterm elections will be a referendum on reproductive freedom and control. Every elected representatives must stand with the 72% of Americans who support the right to choose, or they can stand on the wrong side of history--and be voted out come November.”
