COLUMBUS — State Representative Monique Smith (D- Fairview Park) issued a statement after a Hamilton County judge temporarily blocked Ohio’s six-week abortion ban for 14 days. 

“Yesterday’s ruling against Ohio’s extreme abortion ban reaffirms the majority of Ohioans’ beliefs that women should have the freedom to make their own health care decisions,” said Rep. Monique Smith. “While this is a temporary victory in Ohio, we will continue fighting back against the Ohio GOP’s continued attacks on a woman’s right to choose, as well as against the nationwide abortion ban recently proposed.”
