Ohio Republicans Attack Women’s Health Care

As Government Shutdown Looms, Ohio’s Republican Congressmen Vote to Defund Planned Parenthood

COLUMBUS – Ohio Republican Congressmen Steve Chabot, Bob Gibbs, Bill Johnson, Jim Jordan, Dave Joyce, Bob Latta, Jim Renacci, Steve Stivers, Pat Tiberi, Mike Turner and Brad Wenstrup today voted to endanger health care for tens of thousands of Ohioans who receive critical services at Planned Parenthood.

“Today the Republican men who represent us in Congress put the lives of Ohio women at risk by voting to defund Planned Parenthood,” said Ohio Democratic Women’s Caucus Chair Kathy DiCristofaro. “One in five women receive health care services from Planned Parenthood at some point in their lives, and Ohio Republicans are playing political games with their health and welfare. For their next stunt, they could soon be shutting down the federal government and playing political games with Ohio jobs.”
