CLEVELAND, Ohio-This event has been rescheduled to Aug 2 because Cuyahoga County Executive Armond Budish advised that he would be submitting his women's rights proposal to county council on Aug 2 rather than the previous date that we were given. Women's March Cleveland (216-659-0473) will rally beginning at 5:00pm and later speak at the Cuyahoga County Council meeting in downtown Cleveland at 2079 E 9th St on Tue, Aug 2, 2022 to support County Executive Armond Budish' proposal to county council for abortion access and resources and public policy changes for women in Cuyahoga County. A march will follow. We urge county council to approve the proposal This will be a mass event with a march at 5:45pm

Led by Women's March Cleveland Mr Budish recently met with activists and other women;s advocacy leaders of greater Cleveland to dicuss his proposal and to take recommendations.The meeting was productive.

Also at issue is Ohio House Bill 704, which was recently introduced by Republican lawmakers in Ohio. If it becomes state law it will ban abortion outright in Ohio unless the mother's life is at risk. The heartbeat bill, a state law that took effect after Roe v Wade was overturned last month, bans abortion in Ohio after a fetal heartbeat, which Republicans who championed the new law say occurs at roughly six weeks of pregnancy Democrats say the time in shorter Nonetheless, it is an unconstitutional invasion of women's privacy.
Roe v Wade was overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court on June 24 and women will fight back We rallied at the last county council meeting where Mr Budish unleashed his proposal that he said he will introduce at the August 2 county council meeting. Hence, we shall be there in full force and in support of the initiative. The county executive's prospective proposal for county council to vote upon comes behind the U.S. Supreme Court's June 24, 2022 overturning of Roe v Wade and includes the following points:
...Benefits to county employees allowing them access to reproductive health care services, including abortion care. This benefit would assist with transportation, lodging, and related costs. The County would provide this benefit with the utmost focus on protecting the privacy of employees.
...Financial grants to local and state organizations providing similar health care services to residents, allowing them to access services as needed.
...Financial grants to support local organizations that provide education regarding reproductive health care options, which include abortion care. (These organizations may need additional support to supply these vital education services due to a potential increase in demand),
...Reproductive health initiatives, including a nondiscrimination ordinance that prohibits discrimination, termination, or other loss of public accommodation because of a reproductive health decision.
Women's March Cleveland thanks County Executive Armond Budish as to the aforementioned Our bodies, our choice!!!! and the most read Black digital newspaper and blog in Ohio and in the Midwest Tel: (216) 659-0473.
