State Rep. Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) today released the following statement regarding the Supreme Court’s decision in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt, reaffirming a woman’s constitutional right to make her own decisions regarding her personal health:

“Today’s decision places personal health decisions back in the hands of women and their doctors. It is a huge win not only for women in Texas, but also for those in Ohio and states across the country. The United States Constitution protects women’s freedom, and today’s decision reaffirms that basic and most fundamental right. Continued attacks on women’s reproductive healthcare only endanger public health and should not stand. With Texas’ medically unnecessary laws now overturned, I urge my colleagues to repeal similar unconstitutional TRAP laws here in Ohio. We can start with House Bill 370, which would eliminate Ohio’s onerous and unnecessary transfer agreement requirement.”
