This week, Randi, Jaime, and Gabe discuss the end of days… for the 2016 election cycle.

As Secretary Clinton works to become the first woman to win the presidency, the Cincinnati Enquirer to an unprecedented step in reaffirming their endorsement of her.

The Enquirer also ran an op-ed from state Rep. John Becker, a conservative who embodies the Trump campaign on every issue. He pushed Trump’s lies about abortion:

Trump is the candidate who is supporting pro-life issues, supports the Second Amendment, wants to lower taxes, and control spending. Clinton supports partial birth abortion (baby killing until the moment before the child is completely out of the birth canal) and paid for by the taxpayers.

To counteract these ridiculous claims and the legislation they inspire, NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio has issued endorsements for the Ohio House and Senate:

For the Ohio Senate
District 24: Emily Hagan

For the Ohio House
House District 2: Brittany Bowman
House District 8: Kent Smith
House District 11: Stephanie Howse
House District 13: Nickie Antonio
House District 16: Tommy Greene
House District 17: Adam Miller
House District 18: Kristin Boggs
House District 28: Jessica Miranda
House District 31: Brigid Kelly
House District 34: Emilia Sykes
House District 35: Greta Johnson
House District 56: Dan Ramos
House District 58: Michele Lepore-Hagan
House District 75: Kathleen Clyde
House District 94: Sarah Grace

VP Debate wrap-up

Find us on iTunes: http://bit.ly/naralpodcast

This week, Randi, Jaime, and Gabe discuss this week’s vice presidential debate. Tim Kaine made many excellent points, including some terrific answers on abortion.

 We support Roe v. Wade. We support the constitutional right of American women to consult their own conscience, their own supportive partner, their own minister, but then make their own decision about pregnancy. That’s something we trust American women to do that.

Mike Pence gets the Walk of Shame for denying many statements both he and Donald Trump has made, including this jem:

Donald Trump and I would never support legislation that punished women who made the heartbreaking choice to end a pregnancy.

In the Cleveland Plain Dealer, former state Rep. Ed Jerse complained about how difficult it is to be a “pro-life” Democrat. After a lengthy discussion of the hardship of politicians, he reluctantly admits that education and contraception might be benefits of a Clinton/Kaine administration. We asked why education and contraception are the very solutions that the pro-life movement repeatedly ignore.

Secretary Clinton got a boost this week, as she was endorsed by LeBron James.

I also tell all my kids how important it is that they give back to the community. Because if basketball has taught me anything, it’s that no one achieves greatness alone. And it takes everyone working together to create real change.

When I look at this year’s presidential race, it’s clear which candidate believes the same thing. Only one person running truly understands the struggles of an Akron child born into poverty. And when I think about the kinds of policies and ideas the kids in my foundation need from our government, the choice is clear.

That candidate is Hillary Clinton.

Debate #1 wrap-up

Find us on iTunes: http://bit.ly/naralpodcast

This week, Randi, Jaime, and Gabe discuss this week’s presidential debate. Hillary Clinton destroyed Donald Trump in the debate as he bloviated through 90 minutes on Monday night. Secretary Clinton got the That’s What She Said of the week for turning a criticism from Trump into a win:

I think Donald just criticized me for preparing for this debate. And yes, I did. And you know what else I prepared for? I prepared to be president.

Donald gets the Walk of Shame for his criticism of former Miss Universe Alicia Machado. She was mentioned during the debate, and the Clinton campaign made sure everyone understood how he treated her.

Throughout the week, Donald continued to criticize her and Secretary Clinton, including a 5 a.m. rant on Twitter.

Ohio Rep. Kathleen Clyde celebrated a major court victor this week:

Last week, the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a U.S. District Court decision and ordered Secretary Husted to stop purging voters for not voting.

On this National Voter Registration Day, we’re elated to say that Ohio voters will no longer have to worry that Secretary Husted will randomly select them to be unregistered simply because they don’t vote in every single election,” said Rep. Clyde. “This is a landmark victory for voters, one that is so huge it has the capability of changing the election outcome in Ohio.

New initiative to ban all abortions in Ohio

Find us on iTunes: http://bit.ly/naralpodcast

This week, Randi, Jaime, and Gabe discuss yesterday’s Commander in Chief Forum, sponsored by the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans Association (IAVA.org). Hillary Clinton expressed urgency in assisting active-duty and veteran members of the military to reduce rates of sexual assault and suicide. Donald Trump said that rape in the military was due to men and women serving together in uniform.

In Ohio news, a new ballot initiative was filed with the Ohio Attorney General’s office. The initiative language states the purpose: “To prohibit abortion of all unborn human beings, without exception, and classifying it as aggravated murder in the State of Ohio.”

NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio Executive Director Kellie Copeland said:

The proposed law would punish women, plain and simple. If passed, women and doctors would be imprisoned for any abortion, even one to save a woman’s life. Also, the language would block prescription birth control, emergency contraception, IUDs, and could impact access to in-vitro fertilization.

The so-called ‘Heartbeat Bill’ was unconstitutional. Multiple anti-abortion restrictions signed by John Kasich have been ruled unconstitutional. When will anti-abortion zealots stop trying to punish women?

The filling is the very first steps in the ballot initiative process, when the AG’s office and ballot board reviews petitions for basic legal requirements. If approved, petition solicitors can begin to collect the 300,000 valid signatures they will need to qualify for the ballot. They could complete the task in time for the 2017 election, but signatures do not expire, so this proposal could go to voters in any future year.

One theory is that, if passed, this law would give President Donald Trump a test case to overturn Roe v. Wade after appointing one or more US Supreme Court justices.


On Sept. 10th, abortion rights supporters will gather in Cleveland for a night of music, comedy, and entertainment.

All Access will feature performances from Grammy-nominated artist Sia, standup from Saturday Night Live cast member and Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones, and Grammy award-winning singer Natalia Lafourcade, with Comedy Central’s Jessica Williams as the host.

This week, Sia released her new video, The Greatest. The song and video also are a haunting and emotional tribute to the victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando that killed 49 members of the local LGBT community.
