"NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio criticized the proposal, calling it an obvious attempt to give the U.S. Supreme Court a chance to overturn Roe v. Wade"

Does anyone think that this will be passed? Does anyone think that SCOTUS will overturn R v W because of this? The OH GOP seems to have lost their tiny minds.

Ohio GOP Introduces Bill To Ban Abortion
After a federal judge put the brakes on Ohio's latest abortion restrictions, a group of Republican lawmakers is trying to take a step even further: banning all abortions in Ohio.

Under a bill introduced Monday, HB 565, the state would prohibit abortions even in cases of rape, incest or danger to a woman's life.

The proposal would allow criminal charges against both doctors and pregnant women seeking abortions and would characterize an "unborn human" as a person under Ohio's criminal code regarding homicide. That means abortions could be punishable by life in prison or even the death penalty.

Just another piece of evidence that the GOP only cares about kids in the womb but once born they don't give a flying fuck about them. After all, these great kids in the March for Life don't give them campaign money, or at least not as much as the gun lobby. As they grow, if they're born into poverty or if they're sick, tough shit! Cut food stamps SNAP, cut Medicare and Medicaid expansion, cut AFDC, Cut healthcare, cut WIC, cut CHIP etc etc. They have to cover the loss of revenue caused by the huge giveaway to themselves somehow.

I don't see how this possibly could hold under the Supreme Court... also kind of doubt Kasich would be in favor of such a drastic measure.

I guess the GOP in Ohio wants to punish women as well.

Especially the poor and low income ones.

Exactly. The Republican version of the "right to life" begins at conception and ends at birth. It is the only way someone who claims to be "pro-life" can also support the death penalty. (The Catholic Church is, at least, consistent on the issue.)

I think we see in legislation in Mississippi's 16 week law and this that GOP is trying to force a revist by SCOTUS.

Abortion legislation is the kind of legislation the GOP loves. It cost nothing and it scores points with the base.

Abortion rates are at historically low levels according to the CDC. More effective BC and newer-safe methods of morning after aboritfacients are going to help lower the incidents of abortion even lower...and that should be the goal of everyone.

More and safer options, more access to options are here and more are coming.

Of course, you realize the GOP also oppose abortifacients and birth control, right?

What if we lose one or two more SCOTUS members and the GOP gets to picks the new ones?
