State Rep. Kristin Boggs (D-Columbus) 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 applaud the Supreme Court's verdict finding that the restrictive measures adopted under Texas law were not medically necessary. I believe that today’s decision will send a clear message to state legislatures across the nation – including our own here in Ohio – that similar politically-motivated obstacles to prevent women from accessing abortion will be struck down.”
