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/

Talking Post-Roe America with Robin Marty

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

This week, we have audio from our Hannah Servedio’s speech at the Cleveland Women’s March.

Then we have a terrific conversation with Robin Marty about her new Handbook for a Post-Roe America. After providing readers with a brief history of the abortion rights movement in America, the heart of the book is an instruction manual. Marty provides an amazing collection of advice on how to be involved both as an activist and how patients can obtain abortion access in the face of legal attacks. Whereas her previous work, Crow After Roe, was an in-depth discussion of abortion bans in each state, this new work is a useful guide, complete with contact information of helpful organizations across the country and even how to self-induce abortion in your own home.

Wrapping up 2018 with a vote on a veto

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

This week, we have audio from the last week of the 2018 legislative session. First, Gov. John Kasich spoke at an event in his last week, including a Q&A with the audience. We brought a medical student to the event to ask him how he was going to act on the two abortion bans on his desk — the abortion method ban (he signed it) and the six-week abortion ban (he vetoed it).

Then, we hear floor speeches from pro-choice legislators against the six-week abortion ban was brought up for veto override votes on December 27. We hear from Rep. Emilia Sykes, Rep. Richard Brown, Rep. Teresa Fedor, Rep. Nickie Antonio, & Rep. Tavia Galonski.

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.
