Floor speeches against a six-week ban

NARAL’s The Morning After is a production of NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio.


This week, we’re playing audio from floor speeches during today’s House debate over a six-week abortion ban. This episode includes speeches from Rep. Nickie Antonio, Rep. Kristin Boggs, Rep. Michele Lepore-Hagan, Rep. Stephanie Howse, Rep. Brigid Kelly, and Rep. Catherine Ingram.

The Ohio House passed a six-week abortion ban by a vote of 58-35.

NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio Executive Director Kellie Copeland said: “Anti-abortion ideologues should not attempt to insert politics between a patient and their physician. What we’re seeing is state legislators, John Kasich, and Mike DeWine playing politics with women’s lives. This abortion ban would block patients from the care they need and deserve. If enacted, this legislation would worsen the reproductive health care crisis in our state. The decision to have an abortion is not a political decision.”
