Blocking the six-week abortion ban

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

listen-on-apple-podcasts

This week, Kelley, Hannah, and Gabe discuss the rally, hearings, and — SURPRISE! — lack of vote from the Ohio Senate committee hearing the bill. Without that vote today, the bill sponsors will likely be unable to pass the bill AND override a governor’s veto before the end of the year.

Opposing the bill, our Kellie Copeland has an op-ed in the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Once a woman has made the decision to end a pregnancy, she needs access to safe, legal abortion care in her community. Period. Bodily autonomy is a human right and has a powerful impact on women’s health, educational attainment, career trajectory, and ability to obtain and preserve economic security.

Yesterday, 31 people testified before the committee, including Kelley, Hannah, and our own Jaime Miracle. Committee video available on OhioChannel.org.

While this bill may be dead, other restrictions could still be passed next week. Email your Ohio senators and representatives to oppose ALL abortion bans and restrictions.

Working to #StopTheBans

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

This week, Gabe and Jaime are joined by Michelle, who is just back from a trip to North Carolina to support a clinic in that state. Over 10,000 protesters surrounded A Preferred Women’s Health Center, and clinic escorts like Michelle traveled there to support patients and staff.

Michelle made the trip after attending the Ohio House session where they passed the six-week abortion ban. On this week’s show, we discuss what happened in the House, what could happen in the Senate, and why we need more than a meaningless veto from John Kasich.

Tell your Ohio state senator and representative to stop this and all abortion bans in 2018.

Floor speeches against a six-week ban

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

listen-on-apple-podcasts

This week, we’re playing audio from floor speeches during today’s House debate over a six-week abortion ban. This episode includes speeches from Rep. Nickie Antonio, Rep. Kristin Boggs, Rep. Michele Lepore-Hagan, Rep. Stephanie Howse, Rep. Brigid Kelly, and Rep. Catherine Ingram.

The Ohio House passed a six-week abortion ban by a vote of 58-35.

NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio Executive Director Kellie Copeland said: “Anti-abortion ideologues should not attempt to insert politics between a patient and their physician. What we’re seeing is state legislators, John Kasich, and Mike DeWine playing politics with women’s lives. This abortion ban would block patients from the care they need and deserve. If enacted, this legislation would worsen the reproductive health care crisis in our state. The decision to have an abortion is not a political decision.”
