As many as 99,000 low-income Ohioans who want birth control and reproductive health care services have fewer options now that Planned Parenthood nationwide has pulled out of the federal Title X program. In nine Ohio counties, it’s the only provider that accepted Title X funds.

The organization is announcing its largest electoral effort yet — with plans to spend at least $45 million backing candidates in local, state and national races who support abortion rights.

Planned Parenthood of Southwest Ohio will close two locations Sept. 20.

The U.S. Supreme Court declined to take up an appeal of an Alabama law that bans dilation and evacuation abortions, the method most commonly used in the second trimester. That means a lower court ruling, which said the ban was unconstitutional, will stand.
