COLUMBUS, OH –– In response to today’s federal court ruling blocking Ohio’s law defunding Planned Parenthood, Ted Strickland issued the following statement.
"Today and everyday, I am proud to stand with Planned Parenthood. This ruling is a powerful reminder that a woman’s healthcare decisions should be between her and her doctor, no one else. Planned Parenthood clinics and providers in Ohio provide vital, life-saving healthcare services, and while we still have more work to do to ensure women have access to the healthcare they deserve, this ruling is a victory for Ohio’s women and families.”
Previously, Strickland joined women and community leaders to unveil his Ohio Families First plan to fight for women and working families, and launched “Women for Ted,” a coalition of 100 women leaders who are supporting his campaign.
