More work to do in October

This week, Stephanie, Elaina, and Gabe discuss Trump’s failure to adequately address multiple tragedies in the last month. In place of meaningful action, Congress got to work on a 20-week abortion ban.

The Ohio Senate is considering a re-appointment of Mike Gonidakis to the State Medical Board and there couldn’t be a worse idea. Send an email to the Ohio Senate to ask them to oppose this appointment.

Holy Toledo

listen-on-apple-podcasts

This week, Kellie, Vashitta, and Gabe discuss Capital Care Network in Toledo. An August 30 Toledo City Council meeting to support a clinic protection ordinance heard testimony from clinic escorts, staff, and patients who have sen harassment by protesters first hand.

Part 2 of the Toledo City Council hearing

This week, Toledo’s Capital Care was again the focus of a hearing, this time in the Ohio Supreme Court. Clinic attorney Jennifer Branch presented an argument that John Kasich‘s “transfer agreement” rule is unconstitutional.

Also on Tuesday, the Ohio Senate Committee on Health heard our testimony on the Down syndrome abortion ban. Kellie testified that afternoon after we recorded this podcast.

Finally, we discussed the possibility of a Total Abortion Ban, which became a much more serious notion later in the week when we learned that Janet Folger Porter, author of the “Heartbeat Bill” visited the White House to discuss a national version of the same ban.

We’ll definitely be discussing that idea more, next week.

Racial violence in America

listen-on-apple-podcasts

This week, Jaime, Elaina, and Gabe discuss the violence in Charlottesville, VA. One woman, Heather Heyer, was killed while protesting white supremacist groups, and the nation was sent into an intense debate over racism, Confederate statues, Tina Fey, and Donald Trump’s failure to condemn hate groups.

In Ohio, we were keeping an eye on the state legislature. The Down syndrome abortion ban returned for a second hearing this year. The bill was previously considered in 2015, when the Toledo Blade and New York Times both issued editorials against it. Rep. Janine Boyd and Rep. Stephanie Howse wrote against it in the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Finally, parents like David Perry wrote against the bill for CNN.

In Cleveland, Preterm hosted an event with Dr. Willie Parker, an abortion provider from Alabama. He came to discuss his new book, Life’s Work: A Moral Argument for Choice. While he spoke, an artist captured some of his ideas on canvass.
