Call Ohio Governor Mike DeWine and Tell Him What Happened to Brittany Watts Can Never Happen Again
In case you missed it, in the latest chilling example of the MAGA war on women, a grand jury in Ohio recently considered whether to indict Brittany Watts, a woman who miscarried a nonviable fetus at home, with abuse of a corpse (you can read more from The New York Times here). On Thursday, January 11th, a grand jury decided not to indict -- but what happened to Brittany should never have happened in the first place.
We urgently need Governor Mike DeWine to speak out about Brittany's case and make clear that Ohio law does not and should not ever support criminalizing someone for experiencing a pregnancy loss. What happened to Brittany sends a chilling message to women about seeking medical help in times of need, potentially putting their health and lives at risk. And we must ensure it never happens again.

Demand Justice for Brittany Watts
I am relieved that the grand jury dismissed the case against Brittany Watts. But, she should have never been charged in the first place. Ohio law does not support, and should never support, criminalizing someone for experiencing pregnancy loss.
No one should be criminalized while they are grieving and recovering from a miscarriage. I urge you to speak out publicly on the case and your office to take immediate action to ensure that what happened to Brittany doesn't happen to anyone else. Women's health is on the line.
