This week, Kelley introduces some of the pro-choice floor speeches we heard as the Ohio House debated HB 214, the Down syndrome abortion ban bill.

Our podcast audio includes:

  • Rep. Emilia Sykes (D-Akron)
  • Rep. Tavia Galonski (D-Akron)
  • Rep. Michelle Lepore-Hagan (D-Youngstown)
  • Rep. Stephanie Howse (D-Cleveland)
  • Rep. Brigid Kelly (D-Cincinnati)
  • Rep. Nickie Antonio (D-Lakewood)
  • Rep. Teresa Fedor (D-Toledo)

Unfortunately, we lost the vote 64-31 and the bill moves to the Ohio Senate for deliberation.

Email your Ohio state senator to stop HB 214.
