Ohio Rep. Stephanie Howse of Cleveland heading to El Salvador to learn about criminalization of abortion

By Laura Hancock, cleveland.com
COLUMBUS, Ohio – State Rep. Stephanie Howse was on a plane Tuesday headed to El Salvador to learn about the effects of the world’s most extreme abortion law.

Howse, a Cleveland Democrat who has opposed recent restrictions in Ohio to abortion rights, is part of a delegation of five Democratic female lawmakers from states that have recently passed strict abortion bans. The other lawmakers are from Alabama, Florida, Arizona and Georgia.

The State Innovation Exchange is paying for the trip. It’s an organization that wants to advance progressive policies across the country.

In El Salvador, women face criminal charges for aggravated homicide if they’re suspected of having an abortion, even in cases of obstetric emergency. This includes the high-profile case of Evelyn Hernandez, who served 33 months of a 30-year sentence after giving birth to a baby that forensic tests had determined died of a medical condition.

1. We know what the GOP wants, punish or execute women for reproductive healthcare

The only question is, since 4 of the SC justices are patriots and care about the law and constitution and 4 of them are nothing of the sort, will Roberts throw the nation into complete chaos?

And I am thinking he may NOT which may mean he is already on somebody's "list."
