Post Roe, dangerous Ohio law that criminalizes health care and women's freedom already taking effect

June 28, 2022

COLUMBUS— Ohio House Democrats and Democratic Leader Allison Russo (D- Upper Arlington) today issued the following statement regarding Ohio’s six-week abortion ban, which was given the go-ahead by a federal judge today after a three-year injunction on the Ohio Republican-passed law:

“Turning women’s health into a political and legal playground and making abortion a crime will drive away leading businesses, good jobs and widespread economic prosperity for all Ohioans.

“Republicans imposing their own cruel and extreme political views on the state will make Ohio a dangerous and insecure place to put down roots, start a family and have a good quality of life.

“Ohio Democrats won’t stop investing in our children and families, just like we won’t stop fighting to protect your fundamental freedom to control your own body, life, and future.”
