The latest first hearing on the six-week ban

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


This week, Jaime, Kelley, and Gabe discuss the first hearing on Senate Bill 23, the latest version of the six-week abortion ban. This may be the initial hearing, but it’s the fifth session of the Ohio General Assembly that this horrific ban has been introduced, a history reaching back to 2011.

Sen. Kristina Roegner (R-Hudson) provided sponsor testimony on the bill, which included some new ideas we’ve never heard before. She shared a story of a friend who put a child up for adoption, and compared pregnancies to bald eagle eggs. Seriously. The important point is that no matter what unusual experience or comparison someone has, that isn’t a good enough reason to ban abortion access for everyone else.

In committee, we heard terrific questions from Sen. Nickie Antonio (D-Lakewood) and Sen. Tina Maharath (D-Columbus).

The State of the Uterus with Lady Parts Justice

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

This week, Kelley interviewed Jaye McBride, the head writer from Lady Parts JusticeThe LPJ team has two fun things to talk about this week.

First, they unveiled a hilarious 2019 State of the Uterus video. “On February 4th, Eunice P. Justice, our Uterus in Chief, addresses a joint session of Congress for the annual State of the Uterus, discussing the state of reproductive rights in 2019.”

Next, they’re continuing to raise attention to the lies told by so-called “Crisis Pregnancy Centers” — those fake women’s health centers that take public tax dollars and mislead women seeking answers during a pregnancy. They’re asking people to #GramTheVan to expose how CPCs use busses and vans to bring shameful tactics straight to your door. Find more on that campaign at https://www.exposefakeclinics.com/
