Congressman Tim Ryan (D-OH) issued the following statement regarding today's 5-4 Supreme Court ruling in NIFLA v Becerra striking down a California law requiring so- called "crisis pregnancy centers" to provide information about their anti-abortion mission:

"I'm outraged that today's SCOTUS ruling undermines women's health care. There's over 180 fake women's health centers in Ohio, and over 2,700 across all 50 states. Each of these centers impact thousands of women at vulnerable moments in their lives and denies them essential medical information, compassion, and support. The California law was passed to make sure anyone who claims they provide medical care is held to a high standard of honesty and professionalism, so women receive accurate information about their full range of reproductive health care options. Women deserve to be able to make decisions about their own lives, bodies and futures, and today's SCOTUS decision undercuts that sacred right," said Congressman Ryan.
