AG Yost’s Statement on Supreme Court Ruling Overturning Roe v. Wade

(COLUMBUS, Ohio) — Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost today issued the following statement regarding the Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization:

“This decision returns abortion policy to the place it has always belonged: to the elected policy branches of government. Roe was poorly reasoned, a doctrine of shifting sands that invited perpetual litigation.

“We will continue to debate this issue. But passion is not a license to violence. I call again on my federal colleague, Attorney General Merrick Garland, and my fellow states’ attorneys general to publicly commit to holding violent protesters accountable under the law, no matter which side they are on.”
