Will Mike DeWine Veto Any Bill That Includes Contraception Bans and Same Sex Marriage Bans?
July 29, 2022
Columbus, OH — This week, at the Ohio State Fair, Mike DeWine made a bold prediction: “We’re not going to have any kind of change in contraception law. We’re not going to have any kind of change in regard to marriage, for heaven’s sake. It’s not going to happen.”
Anyone who has been paying attention to DeWine’s term as governor, however, knows that he’s not the guy running the show, extremists in the legislature are. So it’s very likely that DeWine sees a bill on his desk that would ban contraceptives or ban same-sex marriage. In fact, Republican Gary Click has already introduced legislation that would likely ban certain kinds of birth control.
And the question that Mike DeWine needs to answer right now is: will he veto any bill that bans contraception or same-sex marriage?
“Mike DeWine’s legislative record has more caves than an Ohio State Park. So, it’s time for DeWine to make it clear to Ohioans right now: will he veto any bill that bans contraceptives or same-sex marriage? Any answer short of a promise to veto those bills is a signal to Ohioans that DeWine he’s willing to sign away their rights if he’s reelected in November,” said Ohio Democratic Party spokesperson Matt Keyes.
