Ohio Supreme Court could reinstate 6-week abortion ban ahead of Nov. vote

Arguments will begin on Sept. 27th, 2023 on the six week abortion ban currently on hold in Ohio. Rep. Dr. Anita Somani, who was also a guest speaker at our Women's History Month Dinner, is very concerned of the number of lives that could be lost due to one of the harshest abortion bans being reinstated ahead of the general election this fall.

When a Republican representative was asked for comment Rep. Josh Williams had this to say. “You engaged in adult activity, you have a reasonable time to get done with your beer goggles and your bad decisions and say, ‘let me go and talk to my doctor,'”

Let us remind everyone,  not every woman or child who becomes pregnant is a promiscuous, adulterous, evil person who deserves to be forced to raise an unwanted child so that they will repent and find their way. What we are talking about  is a one size fits all ban that harm innocent people, it removes only safe abortions it will never prevent all of them. It will force more ten year old children to give more here

Ohio abortion-rights group submits signatures for November ballot measure

Ohioans United for Reproductive Rights delivered 422 boxes of petition booklets to the Secretary of State’s office with the names of more than 710,000 voters, the coalition said, who support their ballot initiative to enshrine the right to abortion up to the point of fetal viability into the state’s constitution. The minimum number of signatures required is a total of 413,446 from 44 of Ohio’s 88 counties.

“Those 422 boxes are filled with hope and love and dreams of freedom, of bodily autonomy, of health, of being able to say, ‘We decide what happens to us – not some politician, not some judge, not someone who doesn’t know me, who doesn’t know my kid, who doesn’t know my best friend – but me,'” Kellie Copeland, executive director of Pro-Choice Ohio, said Wednesday. “We trust Ohioans to make their own reproductive decisions.” ~NBC4i

Very Important Message From WIN

Supreme Court Draft Overrules Roe v. Wade:                                                                                            click arrow to read more

A WIN Letter to Ourselves and Our Community

We are suddenly – and shockingly –at the moment we feared: A draft majority opinion by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito has overruled Roe v. Wade as “egregiously wrong.” Five justices, three nominated by a president who failed to receive a majority of the popular vote, have taken away a constitutional right that has stood for nearly fifty years; five people have flouted established legal precedent and public opinion and decided to take from women across this entire nation the right to autonomy over their own bodies.

Significant change to the draft is unlikely: states will be able to outlaw abortion without exceptions for rape or incest. Thirteen states with “trigger bans” will outlaw it almost immediately (note Ohio’s HB 598, which criminalizes abortion, its sponsor calling rape “an opportunity”). Twenty-six have laws indicating banning intent.

What this means:

·   Abortions – illegal and unsafe – will nonetheless continue, and women will die: primarily, Black and Brown women unable to leave children and jobs to travel to, and pay, at legal abortion clinics.

·   Women’s economic and professional achievement will be set back decades – to their families’ detriment and society’s loss.

·   Companies will feel the impact of decreased participation by women in the workforce.

·   Same Sex Marriage, Interracial Marriage, and Birth Control – based, like Roe v. Wade, on constitutional privacy rights jurisdiction – will potentially soon be on the chopping block.

·   Nearly everyone will feel the impact – save a white male ruling class in minority-controlled state legislatures.

If this matters at all!:

·       We’ve got to be active and vocal like never before, supporting our candidates, registering voters, working against gerrymandering and voter suppression!

·       Gerrymandered maps will be a challenge, but they can’t affect a statewide vote! The November election is key: Congress can codify Roe v. Wade!

·       Sitting out the election isn’t an option; we all must decide – even companies – to step up. We invite all progressive Clark County organizations to join us in working to elect Democratic candidates!

Abortion is still legal in Ohio for 6 weeks  21 weeks and 6 days learn how to extend that time below

The Supreme Court has overturned Roe V. Wade here is how you can currently obtain an abortion in the state of Ohio.
The  Biden administration is working to ensure there is no interruption in your mail service as he said it is  paid for with federal tax dollars, not state.  The Biden administration is also working to guarantee safe travel from state to state. 

                                                    click arrow to read full statement      Roe 101 – What do Ohioans do now?

Roe Has Fallen 101 – What do Ohioans do now?

Women across the nation will never forget where they were on the morning of Friday, June 24, 2022, as the leaked decision overturning Roe v. Wade became final. Many states had trigger laws in place with immediate impact. While Ohio did not, it was not far behind. Within an hour, Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost boasted on twitter that he had filed to dissolve the injunction that had prevented Senate bill 23, also known as the “Heartbeat Bill,” from being enforced. The injunction was dissolved by early afternoon.

What are the current restrictions?

Senate Bill 23, the “Heartbeat Bill,” makes no exception for rape or incest. Once electrical activity is detected, a woman loses the right to choose. This electrical activity can be detected as early as a few days after a woman’s first missed period.   This is currently on hold and abortions are legal in the state of Ohio, however the other restrictions listed below are still apply.

House Bill 108 mandates that a woman must wait a full 24 hours between visits to a clinic before gaining access to an abortion. House Bill 42 further clarifies that the physician must meet the patient in person.

House Bill 241 – prohibits a nurse practitioner from prescribing abortion medication.

Senate Bill 154 – prohibits a physician’s assistant from prescribing abortion medication.

As of July 1, 2022, the Ohio Supreme Court denied a request for an emergency stay on Senate Bill 23.

What do our current restrictions mean to you? – Abortions are still legal in Ohio, however women seeking abortions are impacted by all of these bills. House Bill 241 and Senate Bill 154 make it difficult to find someone that can prescribe the safe and federally approved medication to induce an abortion. The passage of Senate Bill 23 in conjunction with House Bill 108 requiring a woman to wait a full 24 hours between appointments is not only designed to discriminate against the poor by making the procedure cost prohibitive but also to increase the likelihood the clinic will detect electric activity and thus be forced to turn a patient away.

So while abortions are still legal in Ohio, let’s be honest: the window in which one can get an abortion is so small that it is easily unattainable. Please read further to see what you can do to obtain an abortion or support someone who needs one.

What are we doing about this? 

The Biden administration is looking into every possible way to fight the overturning of Roe. Biden has stated that the Postal Service is a federal program and his administration is working to ensure that no state will interrupt or intercept an individual’s mail. This means a woman should be guaranteed delivery of the medication required for an abortion, which is a combination of mifepristone and misoprostol.

Currently, organizations have worked to bring forth a ballot initiative to ensure that the voters of Ohio can vote this November. The GOP are attempting to circumvent this effort by increasing the threshold from 50% to 60% to pass this legislation. We still need nearly 500,000 valid signatures by July 5th. 

In the state of Ohio you can currently be prescribed and have these medications delivered to you – visit This is the site of a private group of doctors working around the world trying to ensure that every woman has the right to choose. They have been gearing up to provide American woman access for sometime. Their medication is only effective for the first 11 weeks. Use “Abortion finder” to find further information on access to medication through the mail.

What if I am further along than 11 weeks? – Biden’s Administration is also trying to protect Americans’ right to travel. This would allow the organizations that are raising money to help a woman travel for healthcare to continue to operate.

Where can I go? – Closest states to Ohio with little restrictions are Illinois, New York, and Maryland. Michigan and Pennsylvania both have 24 hour waiting periods.  There are organizations setting up mobile clinics and parking just across the borders of the states that have outlawed abortions. Organizations are coming together as quickly as they can to find ways to get patients to the healthcare they need. At the moment one of the best places to visit is to see up to date information. Organizations that will help fund abortion care can be found here New York is working on passing legislation to become an abortion safe haven state. This legislation would not only protect the privacy of the patient but will hopefully help fund the procedure as well as travel. The options are growing and we will do our best to keep the website up dated or send out additional information directly to you.

Here is a little science that seems to stump some of our Republican legislators:

Why do they use the term “heartbeat”? Physicians have used common language to explain and replace complex medical terms to help their patients better understand what is happening to them. The term heartbeat is easy to understand, is comforting to women who are excited to become mothers, and doesn’t require further explanation by the doctor. Who knew that legislators would use this term to outlaw a woman’s choice?

Electrical activity is not a heartbeat. It is electrical activity of a group of cells that is being interpreted by devices like an ultrasound machine to measure the progress of the embryo. This embryo is just a group of cells; it does not have a heart, does not have a circulatory system. This electrical activity does not guarantee that these cells will produce a live birth. At this point of development it is not even considered a fetus.

How far along are you? The date of your last period is the only known measurable date and will be used to determine how far along you are. This is an estimate. You cannot get pregnant while you are shedding your uterine lining but this is something that is easily defined. It is approximated that you will become pregnant near the 14thday of your cycle, if you have a regular cycle. This becomes extremely complicated when you begin to factor the life of the sperm and the possibility that any change to a woman’s environment, like stress or illness, can impact a woman’s cycle. This is why your physician will perform an ultrasound later in a pregnancy to measure the fetus and determine a more specific due date.

What’s beyond the basics

Have a well stocked medicine cabinet or fund one – Plan B is the brand name for the emergency contraceptive. This needs to be used within 72 hours of unprotected sexual intercourse through *stealthing, forced rape, birth control failure (e.g., a broken condom). You can purchase these contraceptives currently at your local pharmacies or order them offline. There have been issues reported if the person’s BMI is higher than 25 for some brands and 30 or higher for other brands; be sure to read the labels. You can find off-brand medication for a much lower cost. Due to increased interest, people are reporting a limit on the number of these contraceptives you can purchase at one time.

If you need more information on how to get the abortion pills

*stealthing is the act of one partner removing a condom during intercourse without telling their partner. This can result in pregnancy and/or sexually transmitted diseases 

Be careful of posting on social media – By now you may have seen or shared posts saying that“ If you want to go camping in another state that is more camping friendly I will give you a ride,” for example. Whether you are serious or not about “camping,” use care when interacting with these type of posts. Local representative Kyle Koehler has co-sponsored Ohio House Bill 480 that the Republican super majority is now likely to pass. This bill will allow someone who helped a pregnant person obtain an abortion after fertilization to be sued by anyone for $10,000. The enticement of collecting large sums of money is being used to create more division and endanger the lives of women.

DELETE period tracking Apps; ALL of them – We have lost our rights to privacy, including the right to private period tracking apps. If you are suspected of being pregnant, your data can be collected and used to prosecute you for no longer being pregnant. Data collected from your phone would also provide proof that you traveled out of state shortly after you stopped getting your period. Another risk: Target once used shopping algorithms to detect teen pregnancy and sent pregnancy related coupons to the home of an unsuspecting teen who was then forced to disclose her pregnancy.


Why we need to make “good trouble” or make a little noise –

Every March or Rally can be informative –Many marches are organized with speakers and people who are there to help you, by registering you to vote, informing you of initiatives on the ballot, helping you find your polling place. Speakers generally explain what is happening and what you can do about it, identifying whom to contact or what to do next. You never know who you might meet at a rally, or how it might change your life.

Who to contact  – You can text the word “choice” to 71736 for updates from the organizers of the Columbus State House Sunday, June 26, 2022 rally.

You can contact federal legislators, of course, but don’t overlook the impact of more local officials. Call the legislators at your statehouse, tie up their phones, send them emails, and submit testimony. Call your local law enforcement, tell them that you support privacy, and a person’s right to choose. Your local Sheriff is an elected official and you can influence her decisions. Local lead prosecutors are also elected officials; call them and tell them you don’t want them to waste tax payer dollars by prosecuting people seeking healthcare that is best for them. Judges are elected officials too; flood their offices with phone calls. Remind them that if they have a case before them they have the power to minimize the penalties.

Is big Pharma the ally we really need  in 2023?
GeoBioPro has filed a lawsuit against West Virginia's abortion ban.

This is the first time we will see a corporation that gives millions to powerful DC lobbying firms to ensure legislation that favors their business practices sue the very same legislators to ensure they can continue this vicious cycle.  
“A State’s police power does not extend to functionally banning an article of interstate commerce — the Constitution leaves that to Congress,” GenBioPro’s lawyers wrote.

GenBioPro attempted previously to sue the state of Mississippi over their restriction to require patients be seen in person to be proscribed this extremely safe medication that has been on the market of over two decades. 

Wyoming Republicans have preemptively hurt their chances to end access to abortion after they passed legislation just over a decade ago. 

In a move to derail Obamacare in 2012, republicans amended the state constitution to allow citizens the right to make their own healthcare decisions. 

It is this amendment that has allowed a judge to temporarily block the ban on abortions once again. Republicans are said to now be making moves to redefine abortion. If they can successfully pass legislation that specifically excludes "abortion" from the very definition of what healthcare is to suit their personal religious agendas we will be back to square one. This action will allow any insurance lobbying group to decide what is no longer covered once it is redefined as something other than "healthcare". Can you imagine a world in which your insurance no longer pays for your cancer treatment? They would not pay for the very cancer you were subjected to after a train derailed in your backyard?

Returning power over basic rights to illegally gerrymandered states like Ohio is a disaster

In Ohio, where a bipartisan majority on the state supreme court has four times rejected the Ohio Redistricting Commission’s illegal, partisan, gerrymandered Statehouse maps.

Ohio Republicans have schemed and maneuvered to run out the clock so their preferred illegal maps may be forced upon voters, which a federal court panel of judges has now agreed to do without any other resolution for redistricting by May 28.

Meanwhile, Ohioans are already forced this election cycle to vote in illegal, unconstitutional U.S. congressional districts.

Hours after the Supreme Court action, Ohio had outlawed any abortion after six weeks. Now, this doctor had a 10-year-old patient in the office who was six weeks and three days pregnant.  

Schmidt: “Rape and incest is an ugly, ugly, ugly act of violence, and that woman is truly harmed and scarred, and those wounds will never go away and we need to make sure that she has all of the love and help and support. But to end the pregnancy of the child is not going to erase those wounds or those scars. That child still has the right to life.” 

When asked about a hypothetical 13-year-old’s pregnancy spawned by rape as an “opportunity.”

This week Rep. Jean Schmidt's statement became a reality for  a 10 year old rape victim. This child was refused access to the healthcare she needed and was forced to travel to another state. Ohio's GOP are working to make it illegal for children like this to get an abortion. Children at this age cannot carry and deliver a full term child without severe complications. This will impact her entire life while her rapist will likely spend little to no time incarcerated. 

UPDATE:  As of this evening , the Heartbeat Bill is in effect, all abortions in Ohio are ban if a heartbeat is detectable As of now this is on hold

6-Week Abortion Ban (“Heartbeat” bill): Preterm, et al. v. Yost, et al. 

The so-called “Heartbeat” bill, which bans abortion as early as 6 weeks, has been blocked since 2019. Gov. DeWine has indicated publicly that if the U.S. Supreme Court were to overturn Roe v. Wade, he would ask the courts to remove the block which would allow this bill to go into effect. The ACLU of Ohio and others initially challenged this law in May 2019. 

Ohio's Heartbeat Bill S.B. 23 is currently awaiting a decision after Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost boasts on Twitter less than an hour after the decision to overturn Roe V Wade was announced. Yost filed suit to dissolve the injunction against Ohio's Heartbeat Bill. This bill will prevent women and young girls from obtaining an abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detectible.

“This decision returns abortion policy to the place it has always belonged: to the elected policy branches of government. Roe was poorly reasoned, a doctrine of shifting sands that invited perpetual litigation.

Senate President Matt Huffman

"Today, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of life and liberty. Our members have consistently defended the lives of babies yet to be born. We will continue to do so, as we evaluate what additional resources pregnancy centers and young families may need. I look forward to reviewing the specific details in the opinion, so that as we move forward, any legislation we pass in the Ohio Senate follows the guidance of the court, protecting life, and upholding the Constitution. Today, we celebrate a long overdue turning point in our nation's history."

Ohio House Minority Leader Allison Russo

“I am extremely concerned about what this ruling means for women, especially in Ohio where Statehouse Republicans have prioritized banning abortion, punishing women and throwing doctors in jail. Criminalizing health care will only put peoples’ lives in danger.

“As Americans, we know people should have the fundamental freedom to make decisions about their bodies and health care. We have spent more than 50 years fighting for this right, and despite this setback, we won’t give up now. Democrats will continue protecting women’s freedom to access the healthcare they need, including abortion.”

People agree, Abortion is healthcare


We marched...but we must do more

We must call and write our legislators, tell them we support a woman's right to choose. We must call our local law enforcement and local prosecutors and tell them not to prosecute a woman that has gotten an abortion or anyone that assisted them.

Ohio will be the next state to outlaw abortion 

State lawmakers are also currently considering a so-called “trigger law” -- which, if enacted, would automatically ban abortions in Ohio as soon as Roe v. Wade is overturned, with no exceptions for rape or incest. Doing so would make Ohio the 14th state to enact such a law, including the neighboring Kentucky and several southern and Midwestern states with Republican state legislatures.

DeWine stated in an Ohio Right To Life survey ahead of this year’s primary that he would sign “trigger law”-type legislation if Roe v. Wade was overturned, according to gubernatorial spokesman Dan Tierney.

Dayton's only abortion clinic plans to close in mid-September unless laws banning most abortions in Ohio and Indiana are put on hold. A spokesperson for the Women's Medical Center, which operates a clinic in Dayton and another in Indianapolis, says about 90% of the women who have sought abortions at the Dayton clinic since Roe v. Wade was overturned in late June have not been able to get those procedures because of Ohio's new abortion ban.

Abortion restrictions already cost the U.S. more than $100 billion. That number could now get much worse

According to the Institute for Women’s Policy Research, a think tank that advocates for women from diverse backgrounds. The organization released a study in May 2021 estimating that current state-level abortion restrictions cost the U.S. about $105 billion annually due to reduced earning levels, increased job turnover, and time off for women between 15 and 44 years old. Now, if Roe is overturned, that cost will get much higher, something that people don’t often think about in abortion discussions, Nicole Mason, CEO of the Institute for Women’s Policy Research, told Fortune.

States are lining up to pass the most egregious bills. They contain the ability to sue the mother, criminal charges without exceptions for rape or incest. Missouri attempted to pass a ban that does not allow for the removal of an ectopic pregnancy. Ohio has attempted to pass legislation that required physicians to re-implant an ectopic pregnancy after admitting that there is no such procedure.
What many of these bills have in common is they are so poorly written that the confusion surrounded them is preventing many from even attempting to obtain a legal abortion where they are still available. Just recently Texas prosecutor drops murder charge against woman arrested for self-induced abortion.
While Oklahoma is set to pass this latest abortion ban what makes this unique is that nearly half of the state is native territory. Gov. Stitt has fired warning shots telling these tribes that are not to set up abortion clinics even though Gov. Stitt has no jurisdiction.  

 She promised to ban all birth control if she gets the chance.

Said Eubanks: “People believe that birth control — it’s better, like you said, oh, because then you won’t get pregnant and you won’t need to have an abortion.”

She added. “But I think it gives people the false sense of security that they can have consequence-free sex, and that’s not true and that’s not correct. Sex ought to be between one man and one woman in the confines of marriage.”
