Dear John

NARAL_DearJohnBlog_20150720

It’s time to break up with John Kasich.

Send him a “Dear John” letter. Tell him why you do not support his bid for president.

As governor, he has rubber stamped abortion bans, cut funding to Planned Parenthood, and allowed Ohio Right to Life to use the Ohio Department of Health as an attack vehicle against abortion providers across the state.

During his administration, half of Ohio’s abortion clinics have closed.

We’ve seen a terrible cycle since he was first elected:

  • First, Statehouse politicians try to impress anti-abortion lobbyists by pushing terrible bills.
  • Then, Governor Kasich approves anything and everything they place on his desk.
  • Finally, the lobbyists raise money on this and hand it to the next class of anti-choice politicians.

This isn’t governance, it’s cowardice.

The politicians, lobbyists, and Kasich see this as a game, and they don’t care that Ohio women are losing access to abortion.

Worse yet, the game is changing. When a heavily edited video was released with false accusations about Planned Parenthood, John Kasich was one of the first to use it as a chance to score some headlines. We’ve already seen Kasich fail to stop politicians who would harm women — now he’s playing along with the worst kind of extremists.

It’s time to end the game. He can’t take it to the next level.

Send him your Dear John letter today.
