Donald Trump’s war on women and families will be a staple of the presidential campaign.
This week, Republicans in Ohio will vote on a measure that would defund Planned Parenthood.
Ohio’s Republican Governor John Kasich, who’s a strong supporter of abortion rights, is also opposed to the measure.
Trump has already promised to sign the bill into law if it makes it to his desk.
Ohio has also voted to defund Planned, a Planned Parenthood affiliate in Columbus, and to block any federal funding to Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers.
The bill would also bar Medicaid funding for Planned Parenthood affiliates.
Ohioans are divided on this issue.
Some Democrats favor Planned Parenthood’s access to Medicaid, while Republicans argue it’s an anti-woman move.
Some Republicans, like Kasich, oppose the bill and have said it would lead to an increase in the number of abortions.
Ohio is also the home state of Trump’s vice president.
If the Senate passes the bill, it would become law immediately, setting up a showdown with the Trump administration over funding for the women’s health care provider.
But that doesn’t mean Trump will have to sign it.
Trump will likely veto the bill or let it go to a vote, but it’s unclear whether the White House would veto it.
Ohio Democrats and Planned Parenthood have criticized the measure, saying it would have an adverse effect on Ohio’s economy and would have a discriminatory impact on women.
They’ve also accused Republicans of trying to use the vote to push their anti-abortion agenda.
Ohio State Representative Dan McCutcheon, the Republican sponsoring the bill in the House, said in a statement on Monday that the bill “trampled on women’s reproductive rights.”
He also claimed that Ohioans will be “forced to endure a massive increase in abortion” if the bill becomes law.
“This is a political ploy by Republicans to push a political agenda that is blatantly at odds with the women of Ohio,” he said.
“The Republican Party should be fighting for the common good of our state, not the agenda of anti-women extremists.”
The Ohio House passed the bill by a vote of 32-15, but Kasich vetoed it and has vowed to sign any measure passed by the Senate.
The Senate has a chance to override Kasich’s veto by a simple majority vote, and it would need to be 51 votes in favor to override.
But if the Senate takes the issue to the floor, Ohioans could end up voting for the bill on a procedural vote.
In the House bill, McCutcheons would have to persuade his colleagues to vote in favor of his legislation before it becomes law, and there are a number of Democrats who would be against it.
This is a bill that should be vetoed by a President Trump, and I can assure you that Ohio’s Governor is going to do everything he can to block it.
– Ohio State Senator Jim Jeffords, the Democrat sponsoring the measure in the Senate, told The New York Times.
The Democratic-controlled House will vote next week on a similar measure that, while still being introduced in the Democratic-run Senate, is backed by Trump.
