Mike DeWine Would Strip Reproductive Rights The Moment Supreme Court Strikes Down
Roe v. Wade
Columbus, OH — A leaked draft opinion from the United State Supreme Court indicates the Court could overturn Roe v. Wade, and Mike DeWine is poised to strip abortion access in Ohio once that ruling is final. Just hours after Republican Representative Jean Schmidt used vile language to call pregnancy from rape an “opportunity” when speaking about her trigger ban legislation last week, DeWine’s spokesperson acknowledged DeWine would sign the dangerous bill once it passed the legislature.
The fundamental rights of all Ohioans to reproductive healthcare – including abortion and birth control – are on the line in this year’s election.
“Make no mistake: Mike DeWine is ready to rip away abortion rights in Ohio if the Supreme Court votes to overturn Roe v. Wade. Mike DeWine’s re-election would pose a very real threat to Ohioans’ fundamental rights, making this election one of the most consequential in our state’s history. Ohio Democrats will continue fighting for women’s rights to reproductive healthcare and standing up to extremists like DeWine who want to take those rights away,” said Ohio Democratic Party spokesperson Matt Keyes.
