COLUMBUS, Ohio–Today, the Ohio Senate Health, Human Services and Medicaid Committee passed Senate Bill 155, the Abortion Pill Reversal Act and Senate Bill 208 , the Born-Alive Infant Protection Act by a vote of 8-4 and 9-3 respectively.
The following statement may be attributed to Stephanie Ranade Krider, Vice President of Ohio Right to Life:
Ohio Right to Life is thrilled to see these important pieces of legislation moving in the Ohio Senate. Women who have taken the first chemical abortion pill deserve to know that Abortion Pill Reversal is an option to save the life of their unborn child, and the Abortion Pill Reversal Act helps makes that potentially life-saving option more accessible. Likewise, the Born-Alive Infant Protection Act, which would require doctors to provide life saving care to babies who are born alive after failed abortions, is a life-saving, much needed piece of legislation. We hope these will be voted on by the full senate soon. We are thankful to Chairman David Burke and to bill sponsors Dr. Terry Johnson and Senator Peggy Lehner for their strong pro-life leadership in the Ohio Senate.
