CANTON, OH – U.S. Senate candidate Jane Timken released the following statement ahead of the vote on Senate Bill 1975:
“Today, Senate Democrats will shamefully vote for legislation that allows for abortion on demand, for any reason, up until the moment of birth. While dressed up under the guise of ‘women’s health,’ this bill does nothing but give the abortion regime unconditional power with no regard to the lives of innocent, unborn babies, or the life, safety and mental health of the mother.
Votes like today demonstrate the critical importance of electing strong, pro-Life candidates that will be a voice of fortitude against Democrats’ pro-murder, anti-science culture of abortion. I passionately believe that every Life has worth, value and dignity, and in the U.S. Senate, I will be a powerful ally for the pro-Life movement to protect the sanctity of Life.
While defeat of this bill is an important step, the fight for Life is only just beginning. I continue to pray for the wisdom of our Supreme Court Justices to make the right decision to overturn Roe v. Wade and return power back to the states where it belongs – and where it will be greeted by a fierce pro-Life state in Ohio.”
