Today, the Supreme Court hears oral arguments in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a challenge to a Mississippi law that bans abortion at 15 weeks of pregnancy — which could unravel the constitutional right to abortion guaranteed by Roe v. Wade. Should this extreme law be upheld, 26 states could move to ban the right to abortion, and individuals across the country could have 50 years of precedent and constitutionally-secured rights stripped away from them.
This Mississippi law is just one of the latest attacks on a woman’s right to make her own decision about her body. Republican extremism at every level of government is to blame for the continued threat to women’s freedoms and healthcare.
Steve Chabot is to blame — and his record proves it. In July, Chabot signed an amicus brief urging the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade, despite the fact 77% of the American people support keeping Roe in place. In September, when the House of Representatives sought to protect abortion and reproductive healthcare by voting on the Women’s Health Protection Act, Steve Chabot voted “NO” along with the rest of the extremist GOP.

“As the Supreme Court continues to hear oral arguments on backward anti-choice laws like the one in Mississippi, voters in Ohio are reminded that Steve Chabot is all too happy to further the radical crusade to outlaw all abortion in the United States. Make no mistake — Chabot is just another GOP politician trying to control women’s freedoms and take away their constitutional right to make their own healthcare decisions.”
