On Wednesday, Ohio House Democrats heard from people who contend that provisions in the recent state budget attack women’s health care.

During an informal hearing, health advocates, representatives from pro-choice groups, and others spoke against budget items that take effect on September 30.

The provisions they highlighted include stripping funds from Planned Parenthood, requiring women seeking abortions to undergo an ultrasound, and forcing abortion providers to search for a fetal heartbeat.

The event provided an opportunity for experts to be heard after the Republican majority added budget items at the last minute without public comments.
