State Rep. Dan Ramos (D-Lorain) today released the following statement regarding the U.S. Supreme Court decision in the case of Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt, in which the court found that restrictions on access to comprehensive healthcare in Texas placed an undue burden on women, violating the American Constitution:  

“I was pleased to hear of the outcome in Whole Woman’s Health v Hellerstedt and couldn’t agree more that the Texas law, as well as similar statues passed by Republican lawmakers in Ohio, fly in the face of our duty as legislators to uphold the U.S. Constitution.  

“For far too long, Republicans have used these types of regulations, ostensibly under the guise of patient health, to actually chip away at women’s access to comprehensive healthcare. I am glad the court has seen these restrictive measures for what they are – an undue burden on a constitutionally guaranteed right.”
