OHIO: Planned Parenthood is up with a new 30-second TV ad in the Buckeye State. “Being raped was the scariest thing that ever happened to me. But Planned Parenthood provided the care and the support that I really needed,” a woman says to the camera. “So when I heard that Governor John Kasich had signed a budget that could defund Planned Parenthood… I felt very sad for Ohio women. This budget even restricts the help that rape counselors can give survivors like me. Politicians should not interfere in private health care decisions between a woman and her doctor.”
