On June 24, 2022, the United States Supreme Court officially issued a ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, overturning Roe v. Wade & taking away the constitutional right to abortion, abandoning almost 50 years of precedent, and paving the way for states to ban abortion.

This ruling led to the implementation of Ohio’s 6 week abortion ban…and began a slippery slope toward elimination of other reproductive options.

Ohioans United for Reproductive Rights (OURR) is a Joint Entity formed from the following groups:

More than 2,000 doctors, allied medical professionals, business & community leaders, & other advocates committed to enshrining reproductive right in the Ohio Constitution

Leading Ohio-based rights groups formed by the ACLU of Ohio, Abortion Fund of Ohio, New Voices for Reproductive Justice, Ohio Women’s Alliance, Planned Parenthood Advocates of OH, Pro-Choice Ohio, Pre-Term Cleveland, and URGE

What does the amendment do?
* Ensures Ohioans have access to safe, legal, equitable, & comprehensive repro care, including abortion.
* Preserves the sanctity of doctor-patient relationship.
* Enables all people to make repro healthcare decisions free from interference of politicians.
