Why The Bill To Ban Abortion Faces Challenges In Ohio's Legislature

A new bill that would ban abortions in Ohio has been introduced by Statehouse Republicans. A similar total ban bill was introduced last year didn’t pass. So why is this bill being introduced now?

The President of the Right to Life Action Coalition of Ohio, Margie Christie, says this abortion bill has one goal.

“We’re tired of it being regulated. We want it ended," Christie says.

This new bill has a third of the House GOP caucus as co-sponsors. At 723 pages, it’s more than twice as long as a total ban introduced last year.

1. And of course that bill includes full funding for pre-natal health care

and post-birth care for babies, I'm sure. Wait, it doesn't? So does it include paid birth control, including the morning after pill? No? Huh.

Just another forced birth bill, apparently.
