Fighting for an Ohio that works for everyone.

Stop the Threat to Women’s Health

There are certain choices that should be made between a woman and her doctor. Unfortunately, Ohio politicians are taking away health care options for women. That’s why ProgressOhio is teaming up with a doctor to send a message to our politicians to trust women. We need you to get involved

About 500 men, women and children rallied at the Ohio Statehouse Tuesday evening in support of Planned Parenthood. The rally comes as lawmakers are poised to vote Wednesday to defund America's most popular health care provider for women. The fast-moving bill will especially hurt poor women and worsen Ohio's already shamefully high infant mortality rate. At ProgressOhio, we proudly #StandWithPP ... See MoreSee Less
