JUSTICE FOR BRITTANY
We need to Take Action NOW to stop the criminalization of Brittany Watts for her miscarriage.
Brittany Watts experienced a miscarriage and is being criminalized for her pregnancy loss by Ohio prosecutors. Brittany is currently awaiting a grand jury decision on whether she will stand trial for a felony for how she responded in a moment that should never have been made public.
Brittany needs our help to stop prosecutors in Ohio from taking her case to trial.
CALL WARREN PROSECUTOR’S OFFICE
PHONE NUMBER: (330) 675-2426
I’m calling to ask your office to drop the charges against Brittany Watts. As a member of NCJW/CLE and an Ohioan who worked very hard to pass Issue 1, I am disgusted that Ms. Watts has been charged with a felony for a pregnancy loss. Ohio law does not support, and should never support, criminalizing someone for experiencing a pregnancy loss.
I do not want anyone in my community to have to fear arrest for a miscarriage. No one should be criminalized while they are grieving and recovering from a miscarriage.

Dear Prosecutor Watkins,
As a member of NCJW/CLE and an Ohioan who worked very hard to pass Issue 1, and an Ohioan, I’m disgusted that Brittany Watts has been charged with a felony for a pregnancy loss. Ohio law does not support, and should never support, criminalizing someone for experiencing pregnancy loss.
I do not want anyone in my community to have to fear arrest for how their pregnancy ends. [Add why this matters to you].
Please drop all charges against Brittany Watts. No one should be punished, no one should have to endure a felony charge while they are grieving and recovering from miscarriage.
