Women’s Rights Groups Gather At Statehouse To Protest Anti-Abortion Laws

UPDATED: Saturday October 19, 2013 7:47 PM

More than two dozen people held a rally on Saturday to bring attention to legislation that they say strip women of their legal rights.

The groups say laws backed by GOP lawmakers and signed by Gov. John Kasich are hurting women, children, medical professionals and the economy.

“News broke earlier this week that two more abortion clinics here in the state of Ohio will close,” said Mallory McMaster-Ullman of NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio. “We know that’s not going to stop abortions; that’s just going to make them less safe and put women in danger.”

GOP lawmakers have said they were elected by voters all over the state and have a mandate to pass anti-abortion laws.
