This week, Jaime, Vashitta, and Gabe discuss whether Donald Trump will survive his own mess of political scandals, and which Republicans might challenge him in the 2020 GOP Primary.
Jaime testified before the Ohio House Committee on Health against House Bill 149. The bill makes research on fetal tissue double-illegal and tries to label doctors as “abortionists” in state law. NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio objects to the bill adding unnecessary restrictions on abortion providers, as well as placing an inflammatory slur into the Ohio Revised Code.
The Down Syndrome Abortion Ban was reintroduced. This unconstitutional proposal blocks women from terminating a pregnancy following a positive prenatal diagnosis for the disorder. After this idea was first introduced two years ago, it was opposed by families currently raising children with Down Syndrome who don’t want options removed from women facing the same decision. Read David Perry’s column on CNN.com for more.
