Seven and a half million for liars

NARAL’s The Morning After is a production of NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio.


This week, Kelley, Jaime, and Gabe put a wrap on the 2019 Ohio state operating budget. We were disgusted to see that Gov. DeWine did not use a line item veto to remove the $7,500,000 allocation for fake women’s health centers.

Ohio House Minority Leader Emilia Sykes addressed the funds:

In separate crisis pregnancy center news, Rep. Jena Powell and Rep. Tim Ginter are proposing a 50% refundable tax credit for donations to fake women’s health centers.

Butler County Democrats objected to Rep. Candice Keller supporting the #KellerKickback bill, and she has since announced she will abstain because of her conflict of interest.

In other news, Kelley has been leading a great campaign to call on Premier Health to sign a transfer agreement with Women’s Med Center. Send an email to Premier Health to join to campaign!

Talking post-abortion snacks with Michelle Love-Davis and Jordyn Close

NARAL’s The Morning After is a production of NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio.

This week… oh, what have we done? We handed the podcast over to Kelley, who interviewed two of our most… boisterous… supporters. She is joined by Michelle Love-Davis, who co-founded Feminist Flag Corps and currently reps WomenHaveOptions.org; and Jordyn Close, who came from WeTestify.org and now organizes for URGE: Unite for Reproductive and Gender Equity.

These are three fun women who aren’t afraid to get loud in support of abortion rights, even if it means getting in the face of anti-abortion protesters at events and at clinics all across the country.

Note from Gabe: Yes, Michelle, they did bring the Duggars — all of them — to the Ohio Statehouse to promote the “Heartbeat Bill” in 2013. I was in the room. OhioCapitalBlog has the video on his YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/qbk7RVjyxfU

Talking with Pamela Merritt from ReproAction

NARAL’s The Morning After is a production of NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio.

This week, Gabe talked to one his first friends in the reproductive rights movement: Pamela Merritt. Along with Erin Matson, Pamela is a co-founder at ReproAction — a national organization working to increase access to abortion and advance reproductive justice.

Pamela is based out of Missouri, which has just one remaining abortion clinic: Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region. The governor has been trying to close that clinic by refusing to renew their license. While Planned Parenthood’s legal team is fighting to keep the clinic open, ReproAction is busy lifting up the voices of people in that state who desperately need abortion care.
