Sorry Planned Parenthood, John Kasich Works for Ohio Women Not You

Gov. Kasich’s recent pro-woman commercial has ruffled the feathers of abortion advocates who believe that women have one narrow interest when it comes to voting: aborting children.

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 -
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.

It’s no wonder women prefer Gov. Kasich to pro-abortion Ed FitzGerald by a double-digit lead.

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
