Congressman Tim Ryan Calls on Governor Kasich to Veto Controversial Abortion Legislation That Bans Abortion After Six Weeks in Ohio

Dec 8, 2016 Issues: Protecting Reproductive Health

Washington, DC – Congressman Tim Ryan calls on Governor John Kasich to veto controversial abortion legislation that bans abortion after six weeks in the State of Ohio:

“In the late hours of Tuesday evening, the Ohio Senate and House passed legislation that would ban abortion six weeks into a pregnancy. Don’t be fooled, this is a ban on virtually all abortions in the State of Ohio.  Not only is this dangerous bill a risk to women’s health, it is unconstitutional. I call on Governor Kasich to veto this legislation immediately. I will not stand by and allow Ohio to become the most punitive and regressive state in the country when it comes to reproductive health. We need to trust women and families – not politicians – to make the best decisions for their lives.”
