House Republicans' new plan will curb access to vital health services
(Columbus) - State Senator Nina Turner (D-Cleveland) issued the following statement today in response to House Republicans' latest attempt to halt public funding for Planned Parenthood:
"What kind of state are we living in? It is unbelievable that elected officials--stewards of the public interest--would seek to deliberately deny millions of working class and underprivileged women access to high quality healthcare services.
This new plan is another vicious, heartless, and unconscionable volley in the Republican war on women. This narrow policy will disproportionately affect low income and rural areas, and will have consequences that will ripple across the state. I urge Ohio's 5.8 million women and the men who love and respect them to speak out against it."
