02.09.16 - Jones: Pro-life, Pro-Choice Can Agree On This

 

Regardless of your views, no one can deny that even when the state provided funds to groups like Planned Parenthood, Ohio still had some of the worst health outcomes for moms and babies in our nation. Ohio’s infant mortality rate, a key measure, is 45th in the nation.

 

Even more disturbing, the disparity between white and black babies is huge. A black baby in this state has a 21/2 times greater chance of dying before his first birthday than his white counterpart. This inequity can be seen in our abortion numbers, too. Of the 21,186 abortions performed in this state in 2014, 39 percent were performed on African-American women, despite being only 13 percent of the population. These statistics paint a sickening and unacceptable picture for our state.
