Tim Ryan

Congressman from Ohio


Abortion Access

Ryan would repeal the Hyde Amendment “to make sure that everybody has access regardless of what zip code they live in and what their paystub looks like.” [We Decide, 6/22/19]

Birth Control

Ryan says, “Access to birth control is not and should never be a controversial issue.” [Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH), 10/6/17]

Planned Parenthood

Ryan calls Ohio lawmakers’ vote to “defund” Planned Parenthood “a harmful assault on the 56,939 men and women in Ohio who rely on Planned Parenthood.” [Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH), 1/27/16]

Health Equity

Ryan calls for the U.S. to "redouble our efforts to combat" maternal mortality. [Twitter, 12/8/17]

Sex Ed

Ryan is co-sponsor of the Real Education for Health Youth Act, which required that federal funds go to sex education programs grounded in science, not ideology. [H.R. 2720, accessed 8/19/19]
