Mike DeWine Refuses Straight Answer On Abortion Laws After Promising To Go “As Far As We Can” To Strip Reproductive Rights
July 27, 2022
Columbus, OH — Once again, Mike DeWine – the most anti-choice governor in the country – is trying to hide from his long-standing record of ripping away reproductive rights from women in Ohio. After scrubbing his website of all anti-abortion language, DeWine today told a group of reporters he wants to “let the [abortion] debate play out” when asked about his views on legislation that would make abortion illegal in Ohio.
This is the same Mike DeWine who told an anti-abortion group he wants to “go as far as we can” to rip away abortion rights in Ohio and signed an executive order mere hours after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade that implemented one of the most extreme six-week abortion bans in the country, with no exceptions for rape or incest.
“Mike DeWine is trying to hide from his record of ripping away reproductive rights and punishing women, but Ohioans know all too well that DeWine is the most anti-choice governor in the country. He can scrub his website and dodge questions from the press, but he can’t run away from a lifetime of attacking the right to choose. Make no mistake: abortion, birth control and reproductive rights are on the ballot this November, and Mike DeWine will only take Ohio backward,” said Ohio Democratic Party spokesperson Matt Keyes.
