Ohio Democratic Party

Friends,

The attack on the U.S. Capitol Wednesday was an unprecedented assault on our democracy enabled by Donald Trump. The participants were not protestors, they were insurrectionists and rioters. Five Americans lost their lives, including a Capitol Police officer. The horrifying images of that day will stay with me for the rest of my life, and I imagine I’m not alone in that.

Last week was a painful reminder that democracy is fragile, but it prevailed. And while it is shameful that some Republicans abdicated their oath of office by encouraging a mob and undermining democracy, a bipartisan majority — including the vast majority of Senate Republicans — voted to uphold President-elect Biden’s win and forcefully condemned the assault.

Donald Trump’s days are numbered. We stand with Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Leader Chuck Schumer, who called on Vice President Mike Pence and the Cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment and remove Trump for his incitement of insurrection and the danger he still poses. If Trump does not leave office, Congress will act.

In solidarity,

Kathy DiCristofaro, Chair
Ohio Democratic Women’s Caucus


What's New

Mike DeWine Attacks Reproductive Freedom

In yet another example of Mike DeWine’s extremism, the governor recently signed into law an anti-abortion measure that creates new regulations on how fetal tissue is disposed of.

NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio Executive Director Kellie Copeland said in a written statement: “This bill isn’t about making sure pregnant people have options. It’s about limiting which options exist. It’s about shaming patients who choose to have an abortion, and the medical professionals who provide abortion care. It’s about putting abortion out of reach for Ohioans, and that puts lives at risk.”

Ohio House Democratic Leader Emilia Sykes had urged DeWine to veto the bill:

“Senate Bill 27 chips away at the privacy and religious freedom of every woman in this state. At a time where we needed the legislature to convene in order to protect the well-being of all Ohioans, this bill instead attacks Ohio’s women. The legislature failed to listen to women during the committee process, even though they were joined by members of the medical community and religious leaders. Do not let their voices remain unheard.”
