This week, Kelley, Jaime, and Gabe discuss the new ruling from the Sixth-Circuit Court of Appeals to block John Kasich’s 2016 plan to defund Planned Parenthood!
Now, Mike DeWine is considering how much of YOUR tax dollars to waste by filing a new appeal to this unanimous federal court ruling.
Fortunately, we’ve got just the ticket to stop Mike DeWine: Rich Cordray and Betty Sutton were first to applaud Planned Parenthood’s health centers after the decision was announced.
Rich Cordray tweeted: “Great that appeals court struck down defunding of @PPGreaterOH. Republicans have zealously sought to roll back reproductive choice with no regard to the impact on the health of women & kids. That agenda is wrong & as Governor, I’ll oppose it. #OHGov”
