This week, the Ohio House held the final vote on defunding Planned Parenthood, approving Senate changes to the bill 58-32. With that vote, the bill goes to John Kasich’s desk for a signature.
The vote was delayed from January 27 because of a last-minute Senate amendment and because the House decided to adjourn on that day. The result was the final vote wouldn’t happen until February 10, one day after the New Hampshire primary. Kasich will sign the bill as he begins his campaign to win over more conservative South Carolina voters.
Today’s podcast brings you audio from the House debate, with Democratic women leading the defense of Planned Parenthood: Reps. Kathleen Clyde, Emilia Sykes, Greta Johnson, and Janine Boyd.
