COLUMBUS – State Rep. Jena Powell (R-Arcanum) has issued the following statement on the U.S. Supreme Court decision for the Dobbs v. Jackson case:

“Today's decision is a historic victory in the fight to protect unborn babies across Ohio and our nation. The Court's decision empowers states to defend the God-given rights of our unborn sons and daughters.

“Every unborn child has the right to life. Thousands upon thousands of innocent lives were tragically ended in the decades since the Court's wrongful decision in Roe. These lives did not have to end. I am thankful the Court's decision in Dobbs finally rights Roe's historic wrong.

“I have introduced the ‘2363 Act,’ which offers protection to the 2,363 unborn children killed every day through abortion. I urge my fellow Ohioans and my colleagues in the Statehouse to support this urgent legislation.

“The pro-life movement is strong today, and so is the Ohio House Pro-Life Caucus. We will analyze this decision and continue our commitment to defending the rights of the unborn here in our state. Work remains to be done with our state laws, and I remain willing and ready to collaborate with my colleagues on this issue in the coming weeks.”
