Kasich Signs New Abortion Restrictions Into Law With Budget
DAYTON -- Governor John Kasich's (R) abortion provisions goes into effect Monday, essentially making making it harder for family planning groups like Planned Parenthood to receive millions of dollars in funding for preventive care.
"The reason I come here is because I don't have health insurance, I have two jobs but they're both part time. I work hard but I'm not able to afford the health insurance that I need. So luckily I can come to Planned Parenthood and get a great rate on the prescription that I need," said Jessica Campbell.
She says she doesn't agree with Governor Kasich's new bill.
"And patients who are in the same boat as me that need more medical attention and have bigger needs than I do it just seems like we are doing a disservice to women."
Kasich signed the budget into law Sunday that will essentially put groups like Planned Parenthood in last place in some allocations of funding for preventive care. There are also rules that requires ultrasounds for anyone seeking an abortion and rules that limits abortion providers' ability to get transfer agreements with public hospitals.
"It is encouraging to see some more accountability being placed on other organizations that are offering similar services," Melissa Guzman of Elizabeth's New Life Center.
According to the bill, crisis pregnancy centers like Elizabeth's New Life Center will now be able to apply for more funding than usual.
"There are many nonprofits out there who could use added funds to provide these services at no cost to clients I feel like that's a very important benefit," said Guzman.
The Ohio Department of Health will be in charge of filtering the money to the different groups.
"The provision in the Ohio State Budget are parts of an orchastrated effort to roll-back woman's rights and access to healthcare in Ohio. It is only the latest in a series of restrictive laws signed by Governor Kasich that have hurt women in our state who need more access to healthcare and not less," said Misha Barnes, Managing Director of Public Affairs for Planned Parenthood.
