Ted Strickland Statement Opposing Criminalizing Abortion in Ohio

In response to ballot language submitted to Attorney General Mike DeWine that would criminalize abortion in Ohio, Ted Strickland issued the following statement:

“This is an outrageous and offensive attack against the right of women in Ohio to make their own decisions about their health care. The idea of criminalizing lifesaving healthcare services is simply beyond the pale. Unfortunately, this kind of offensive and dangerous proposal is all too consistent with kind of the rhetoric and policies we’ve seen from Republicans like Donald Trump and Senator Portman. I urge all Ohioans -- including Senator Portman -- to join me in denouncing this proposed law.”
