The recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Dodd v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization has led to major changes in state laws and the availability of women’s reproductive health services―and may threaten other personal rights and freedoms.
As a response, Woman’s City Club is presenting a panel of experts who will detail the specific impact of this decision in Ohio. WCC invites the community to join the discussion in person or online to get up-to-date information about what reproductive health services are still available, the practical and legal actions being taking to mitigate the reversal of Roe v. Wade, and ways you can take part in advocacy actions.
Dr. O’dell Owens, noted OB-GYN and former medical director of the Cincinnati Health Department and CEO and President of Interact for Health, will speak about the impact on community health services, the concerns of physicians and other medical staff, and the potential inequity of Ohio’s laws on lower income and minority women.
Kersha Deibel, President and CEO, Planned Parenthood Southwest Ohio Region, will discuss the effect on services available through Planned Parenthood, navigation through the new laws, and ways people can advocate for women’s health.
Elizabeth Hopkins, Organizing Director, ACLU Ohio, will address the legal issues and steps ACLU is considering to challenge the state laws.
