COLUMBUS – Today, members of the Ohio Senate Democratic Caucus celebrated a federal judge’s decision to block the implementation of a law that would have defunded Planned Parenthood and many other healthcare providers throughout Ohio. Judge Michael R. Barrett of the U.S. District Court in Cincinnati ruled that the law, which the Democratic Caucus opposed in the Ohio Senate, would cause “irreparable injury” to Planned Parenthood. Governor John Kasich had signed House Bill 294 into law in February.
