Ohio House Advances Legislation to Defund Planned Parenthood
(COLUMBUS, OH) – Today, the Ohio House of Representatives adopted an amendment to cut funding from abortion providers such as Planned Parenthood. Led by pro-life Representatives Kristina Roegner, Cliff Rosenberger and Chairman Ron Amstutz, the legislative amendment embraces the critical need to support low-income women and their children in order to receive health care.
“Ohio’s abortion industry will no longer feed at the taxpayer trough. Instead, these dedicated health care funds will be offered to those entities where a vast majority of low-income women and their children seek responsible and life-saving services,” said Mike Gonidakis, President of Ohio Right to Life. “With approximately 290 different options available for need-based health care, it is vital for the General Assembly to advance this measure to ensure women have access to health care.”
