01.22.20 - Sobecki Statement In Support Of Women's Right To Choose On 47th Anniversary Of Supreme Court Roe V. Wade Decision

 

State Rep. Lisa Sobecki (D-Toledo) released a statement today expressing support of a woman’s right to choose on the 47th anniversary of the Supreme Court Roe v. Wade Decision.

“For 47 years, it has been established by our country’s highest court that every woman, regardless of who they are, rich or poor, have the right to choose to do what they feel is best for themselves, whether it be to give birth to a child, have an abortion, or put a child up for adoption,” said state Rep. Sobecki. “There is a movement to restrict a woman’s access to abortion. I want to repeat something I’ve said over and over. Restricting access to safe abortions will not stop abortions. Instead, it puts women at greater health risks. Abortions are a normal medical procedure and the decision a woman makes should be between her and her doctor, not an over-zealous government.”

 
 

12.17.19 - Fedor, Sobecki: "State School Report Card Study Committee Didn't Do Its Job"

 

Today, state Sen. Teresa Fedor (D-Toledo) and Rep. Lisa Sobecki (D-Toledo) issued the following statements after the release of the State Report Card Study Committee’s Final Report:

“I am deeply frustrated with the State School Report Card Study Committee’s final report because it failed to meet statutory requirements,” said State Rep. Sobecki. “The report did not offer any concrete recommendations for improvements to the State School Report Card. The process was a disservice to Ohio taxpayers. The Republicans in charge seemed more interested in checking a box than producing a meaningful report. The committee abdicated its responsibilities and we owe it to our youngest Ohioans to do better.”
