Really, Gov. Kasich’s commercial demonstrates the extraordinary lengths he has gone to ensure that women are empowered and healthy in our state.
|John Kasich – “A Better Prescription for Women”|
Whether by fighting human trafficking, ensuring that women have health insurance, or increasing funding for breast and cervical cancer screenings, Gov. Kasich exemplifies the compassion of a truly pro-life leader.
But one pro-abortion group petulantly claims that this ad is “laughable.” What’s so laughable about opposing human trafficking and supporting access to cancer screenings?
For the last year, the pro-abortion side has attempted to incite panic among women, insisting that women will be left without access to health care and important cancer screenings because taxpayer-funding to Planned Parenthood was cut last year.
But women aren’t buying it.
Our governor has continued to address women’s non-abortion-related health concerns while simultaneously standing by the health and safety of women and their children at abortion mills, undermining the false pro-abortion dichotomy that says one cannot be both pro-life and pro-woman.
We continue to thank Governor Kasich for standing behind the multiple Ohio Right to Life endorsed laws that have saved lives across our state in the last few years:
Late-term abortion ban
Judicial bypass revision
Ban on abortion in public hospitals
Ban on abortion insurance coverage for local employees
Federal abstinence grant application
Pro-life student group protection
Abortion insurance coverage prevention
- Re-prioritization of family planning funding away from Planned Parenthood
- Heartbeat Informed Consent
- Ban on transfer agreements between abortion clinics and taxpayer-funded hospitals
- Strengthening of abortion clinic regulations
