In response to a ruling by Judge Michael Barrett to delay a state proposal to prevent taxpayer dollars from supporting non-therapeutic abortions, Speaker of the Ohio House Clifford Rosenberger (R-Clarksville) released the following statement:

“I am deeply disappointed by today's court ruling to block the implementation of a bipartisan-sponsored proposal that would have provided federally qualified health centers and pregnancy help clinics with a greater ability to serve women, children and families.
“Today's action also stalls a critical component of the law that addressed ways to reduce our state's high infant mortality rate.

“As an unabashed pro-life advocate, I do not believe that taxpayer dollars should be used to support abortions. But regardless of where you stand on that particular issue, today's action whereby an unelected federal judge overstepped his authority in order to thwart a law that would have helped women and families is shameful.”
