07.18.17 - New Bill Would Ensure Young Pregnant Women Get Adequate Care

 

State Reps. Nickie J. Antonio (D-Lakewood) and Kristin Boggs (D-Columbus) today announced new legislation to help ensure young pregnant women in Ohio have a say in their own healthcare decisions.

“I believe that all expectant mothers should have access to healthcare and safe delivery options, regardless of their age,” said Boggs. “I hope this legislation will encourage expectant mothers to get the care they need to support their health, and their baby’s health, even if their legal guardians are unwilling to support their pregnancy.”

 
 

02.24.17 - Dems Look To Outlaw Marital Rape In Ohio

 

State Reps. Greta Johnson (D-Akron) and Kristin Boggs (D-Columbus) today introduced legislation to eliminate spousal exemptions for sex offenses, including rape and sexual battery. Ohio is one of just 13 states which legally treat marital rape differently from other forms of rape.

“We must modernize Ohio’s laws and eradicate unacceptable policy that allows someone to commit violence against their spouse,” said Boggs. “Women and men experiencing sexual violence at the hands of their spouses should not be denied the right to seek justice just because they happen to be married to the offender.”

 
 

02.06.17 - Columbus-area Lawmakers Propose Law Change To Protect Ohio's Drinking Water

 

State Reps. David Leland (D-Columbus) and Kristin Boggs (D-Columbus) last week introduced legislation to keep Ohio’s drinking water clean and safe by preventing the destruction of natural buffer zones around drinking-water reservoirs, like the Hoover Reservoir in Franklin County.

“It is simply bad policy to give a select few people the power to alter public landscape in a way that could negatively impact everyone's water supply,” Boggs said. “This legislation will help protect Franklin County's water quality and the health of all our residents.”

 
 

12.07.16 - Eleventh-hour Lawmaking Brings Strictest Abortion Ban In The Nation To Gov. Kasich's Desk

 

Eleventh-hour lawmaking brought the strictest abortion ban in the nation to Gov. John Kasich’s desk this evening, for his signature into law. With U.S. Senate inaction giving way to a pending U.S. Supreme Court justice appointment from President-elect Donald Trump, Ohio Republicans appear to be counting on a new federal bench to re-litigate the constitutionality of their attacks on women’s health care. But Roe v. Wade is settled law upheld most recently by the Whole Women’s Health decision which overturned undue burdens on women’s access to abortion. 

“I am extremely disappointed that the Ohio General Assembly thinks it can intervene in a woman's constitutionally protected right to have an abortion. These private decisions need to remain between a woman and her doctor,” said State Rep. Kristin Boggs (D-Columbus)
