Ohioans are reeling from the attacks on women’s health that were passed in the state budget with no public comments or hearings. These extremist provisions will defund Planned Parenthood, require women to undergo and pay for unnecessary medical procedures, and attempt to gag rape crisis centers from counseling women on all available options after a sexual assault.
Legislators dedicated to protecting women’s health plan to give these budget provisions the hearings they never received.
WHEN: Wednesday, September 18, 2013 at 10:00 a.m.
WHERE: Ohio Statehouse Room 121
