Mahoning women officeholders criticize Ohio budget with abortion restrictions



Published: Wed, July 3, 2013 @ 4:34 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — Two Democratic elected officials — Mahoning County Commissioner Carol Rimedio-Righetti and Youngstown Clerk of Courts Sarah Brown-Clark — criticized Gov. John Kasich and his fellow Republicans in the state Legislature today for approving a budget the duo says restricts women health-care access.

Standing near the city’s Planned Parenthood facility on East Midlothian Boulevard, the two said Republicans are targeting women in the $62 billion biennium state budget signed into law Sunday by Kasich.

The budget bill requires a doctor to conduct an ultrasound for a fetal heartbeat before performing an abortion, places Planned Parenthood at the end of the list for family-planning federal money which will result in the loss of about $1.4 million for the organization, and makes it more challenging for new abortion clinics to open.

With all of the forms of birth control available to women these days, there should be no need for abortions, unless the mothers life is at stake.

This ideological idiots will do anything to advance their ideological positions. Regardless of your position on abortion, these provisions have no business being inserted into our operating budget. This is the kind of government you get when you allow gerrymandering that favors right wing extremists. Lord save us from ourselves and get rid of these bozo clowns......
