This week, Jaime, Vashita, and Gabe discuss the latest at the Ohio Statehouse, including new hearings on the six-week abortion ban, the Down syndrome abortion ban, and the Abortion Method Ban. The Abortion Method Ban was ruled unconstitutional in Texas while we were on our Thanksgiving break.
We also discuss the enormous volume of sexual harassment and assaults that have been revealed in Ohio and across the country.
Next week, the Ohio House Health Committee will vote the senate version of the Down syndrome bill out of committee. A potential floor vote on December 13 would send Senate Bill 164 to Gov. Kasich‘s desk to be signed into law.
