Legislators Continue to Doubt Ohioans Ability to Manage Their Own Health Care Decisions
COLUMBUS—Under the cover of the night on November 14, Ohio legislators introduced House Bill 413, another bill intended to further regulate individuals options to control and manage their own bodies as well as penalize physicians for thoughtful caring for their patients without fear of political interference.

Lauren Blauvelt-Copelin, vice president of government affairs and public advocacy for Planned Parenthood Advocates of Ohio gave the following statement in response:

“This is yet another attack on the sacred physician-patient relationship and on reproductive health care. This extreme bill goes to outlandish levels to further restrict Ohioans decisions around health care and parenting.

“Similar to the other seven active pieces of legislation making their way through the Ohio Statehouse, Ohioans deserve better than politicians that are obsessed with regulating other people’s bodies.

“This legislation will likely irreparably harm the lives Ohioans that decide to expand their family in non-traditional ways. Planned Parenthood will continue to join with other progressive organizations to protect the rights of all Ohioans to control their own bodies and their own destinies.”

Tens of thousands of Planned Parenthood supporters stand poised to vehemently fight back against this piece of legislation as intensely as they did against the near-total abortion ban that was signed by Governor DeWine earlier this year. The near-total abortion ban is currently being litigated in Federal Court.
