Preterm Leadership Team

Our Mission

Preterm's mission is to advance reproductive health and justice by providing safe, respectful, and accessible abortion and sexual healthcare.

Abortion is essential to bodily autonomy and gender equity for all people. Providing abortions is a deeply caring and revolutionary act that is part of dismantling oppression and stigma. These are the values that guide Preterm’s
commitment to abortion care. Preterm is Ohio's only independent, non-profit abortion clinic.
