06.27.16 - Rep. Antonio Comments On U.S. Supreme Court Ruling Affirming Women's Right To Comprehensive Healthcare

 

State Rep. Nickie J. Antonio (D-Lakewood) 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 am pleased that the U.S. Supreme Court today confirmed what common sense had already told us – that needless red tape in the form of transfer agreements and other restrictive measures do not help protect women’s health, but instead are imposed in order to shame and discourage women from seeking to exercise their legal right to an abortion. 

 
 

06.24.16 - Lawmakers Push Bills Guaranteeing Equal Opportunity In The Buckeye State

 

Democratic state lawmakers today called for the state legislature to consider three bills they say will guarantee equal opportunity for gay, lesbian and transgender Ohioans. The renewed push for consideration comes in the wake of the tragic Orlando massacre that targeted the LGBT community and in advance of the one-year anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to guarantee marriage equality in America.

“Our state and our country have taken great strides toward true equality over the past several years, but there is still much work to do to ensure LGBTQ members of our community have an equal opportunity to work, have a safe place to call their home and – most importantly – be who they are without fear of intimidation, coercion or violence,” said Rep. Nickie J. Antonio (D-Lakewood). “Ohio has an opportunity to create a more inclusive society that promotes freedom and opportunity for everyone, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.”

“I am pleased the state is recognizing the excellent work and reputation of homegrown businesses like the Craun Liebing Company, which has been a successful local enterprise for over 90 years,” said Antonio. “I am certain that their quality work will help the Ohio School for the Deaf serve the next generation of students.” 

 
 

06.15.16 - Antonio Announces $3 Million State Grant To Reduce Infant Mortality

 

State Rep. Nickie Antonio (D-Lakewood) today announced the allocation of $3 million in state funds for First Year Cleveland, a city-county initiative to combat Cuyahoga County’s alarmingly high infant mortality rates. The state investment is part of a total $26.8 million allocated in the latest state budget to support community-driven proposals to combat infant mortality at the local level and enhance efficacy among various agencies that provide care for at-risk women and infants.

“I am very pleased that the state is taking concrete steps to combat infant mortality in Cuyahoga County,” said Antonio. “First Year Cleveland’s partnership with the state will help educate the public on preventative practices, provide prenatal care for mothers and pursue innovative solutions to help more infants reach their first birthday.”
