Ohio Democratic Party Statement on Texas Abortion Medication Ruling
April 8, 2023
Columbus, OH — Today, Ohio Democratic Party Chair Elizabeth Walters released the following statement after a Texas judge suspended FDA approval of mifepristone, a safe, widely used abortion medication that has been on the market for decades.
“Last night, a single extremist judge further jeopardized Ohio women’s right to make their own healthcare decisions. It’s clear that Republican politicians in Columbus and Washington will stop at nothing to attack our freedoms and drag our country backwards. As they campaign for higher office — and the power to appoint our nation’s judges — Matt Dolan, Bernie Moreno, and Frank LaRose have a duty to clearly tell Ohioans if they would support a federal abortion ban if elected.”
