For three long years, Planned Parenthood Action of Ohio, NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio, and supporters requested a hearing for the Ohio Prevention First Act -- a common-sense, common-ground measure that would reduce the number of unintended pregnancies in Ohio by increasing access to birth control and ensuring fact-based sex education programs in public schools.
Many of you in the Progress Ohio community wrote letters and made phone calls, and yesterday your efforts paid off: the Ohio Legislature finallyheld its first hearing on the Prevention First Act!
Now we need your help to keep the bill moving forward.
As the legislature hears testimony and makes decisions, it's a great time to create some "buzz" in the media. Can you take a moment to write a Letter to the Editor (LTE)?
If you can help, click here to get started writing a letter of your own.
For more info, here's a blog post I wrote about the Ohio Prevention First Act back in September. As an Ohio resident, I thank you in advance for your support!
