NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio and Planned Parenthood Advocates of Ohio – StopTheBans: House Bill 258 Crowd Build!
Wednesday, November 29
9:00 AM – 11:00 AM
The Ohio Statehouse, Hearing Room 121
1 Capitol Square, Columbus, OH 43215*
Ohio legislators are back at it again… Back in session with the intention to push through more abortion bans before holiday recess. In just the last two weeks they’ve voted out two abortion bans – one in the House and one in the Senate. We invite our supporters to show up and show out in opposition to these harmful bills!
This hearing is for proponent (in favor of the bill) testimony, so we need our supporters to pack our side and show we have power in numbers and that Ohioan’s don’t support abortion restrictions. Find out full details here.
