Representative Niraj Antani (R – Miamisburg) voted today to concur on Senate amendments in House Bill 294, a bill to ensure state and federal funding is not given to organizations that promote or perform abortions, including Planned Parenthood.
 
“I’m proud to be a co-sponsor of this bill,” Antani said. “It will simultaneously protect women’s healthcare options while defunding a vile organization that does not promote life.”
 
House Bill 294 requires the Ohio Department of Health to ensure that funding and materials that are received or used in certain programs are not used to perform or promote nontherapeutic abortions, defunding organizations such as Planned Parenthood.  House Bill 294 was passed favorably from the House this past November.
 
The House concurred with a vote of 59-32. HB 294 will now go to the Governor for consideration.
