The Society joins amicus briefs to fight Ohio and Arkansas abortion bans

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, both Ohio and Arkansas have banned procedural abortion except in cases of emergency. These bans are not grounded in evidence and create concerning gaps in care for any patient who is not a candidate for medication abortion. The Society of Family Planning (the Society) has joined 16 leading medical organizations in signing amicus briefs to support legal challenges to the Ohio and Arkansas bans. The Society has previously signed amicus briefs to oppose abortion restrictions in Texas and Oklahoma.

Across the four briefs, Society members are responsible for 91% of abortion-related articles cited. To see the members cited in the Texas and Oklahoma briefs, click here. We will continue updating this list of authorities.
