Ohio Governor Vetoes Gender-Affirming Care Ban—Showing Republicans *Can* Respect Personal Medical Decisions

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine is the first Republican governor to veto a ban on healthcare for transgender youth.

Laws banning abortion and essential healthcare for transgender people interfere with individual decisions about our health, bodies and our ability to control our futures.
