Sherrod Brown assails male lawmakers for restricting abortion rights

Pointing out that Ohio and Georgia “have both passed laws that would eliminate a woman’s right to make her own health care decisions,” Brown asked, “And who made these laws? It’s always the same − it’s men who don’t even understand how women’s bodies, and preventive care like birth control, work.”
