Columbus, OH—Yesterday, American Atheists, on behalf of its nearly 1,800 constituents in Ohio, wrote in opposition to SB 23, the “6-week abortion ban.”
This bill would impose one narrow religious viewpoint on the vast majority of Ohio women, who support reproductive freedom.
Under the ban, women would lose access to legally protected abortion services. Not only would SB 23 undermine Supreme Court precedent protecting women’s rights, it would criminalize women and their doctors.
“Women, not lawmakers, should make these critical decisions affecting their lives,” wrote Alison Gill, Vice President for Legal and Policy. “These health care decisions should be made in consultation with a doctor who knows her circumstances and not by a politician with a religious agenda.”
