State Rep. Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) today released the following statement after Governor John Kasich signed Senate Bill 127 into law, outlawing abortion after 20 weeks in Ohio: 


“Before Roe v. Wade, 5,000 women per year died from lack of access to safe and legal abortion and we are heading right back there. Ohio’s GOP refuses to recognize women as pain-capable people with their own individual freedom and rights. This ban, the eighteenth restriction that Governor Kasich has signed, is an insult to all women and a danger to their health and their lives. Low-income women especially will be harmed as they have limited resources to overcome the many obstacles enacted by our mostly male politicians.”
