Congresswoman Marcia L. Fudge (OH-11) made this statement after the passage of House Bills 125, 79, and 78 in the Ohio House yesterday. The provisions will now move to the Ohio Senate:
"These provisions are an all out assault on women. Ohio House Bill 125 is the most restrictive law against abortion in the country and the bill does not have an exception for rape or incest. Even Ohio Right to Life acknowledges its unconstitutional nature," said Congresswoman Fudge.
"These bills infringe upon a constitutionally protected right, injecting government into a decision that should be made only by a woman and her doctor. It places an undue burden on the right to choose and blindly ignores a decision heavily weighed by millions of women in Ohio."
