Thomas Reacts to Planned Parenthood Closures in Southwest Ohio
September 9, 2019
Today, Planned Parenthood of Southwest Ohio announced the closure of two Cincinnati clinics, in Springdale and Western Hills. State Sen. Cecil Thomas (D-Avondale) released the following statement in response:

“The Planned Parenthood clinic closures announced today will directly impact the health and well-being of thousands of people in our community – especially women of color. This is the result of the national and state GOP’s longtime efforts to methodically dismantle women’s reproductive rights. Their actions are putting lives at risk. These centers provide life-saving cancer screenings, birth control and regular check-ups to women of all backgrounds and of all means. Republicans’ obsession with controlling women’s bodies will continue to make it harder for women to receive the basic care they need to stay healthy.”
