Ohio's abortion vote should have Kari Lake and the Arizona GOP saying, 'Uh-oh' [View all]

Memo from Ohio voters to Kari Lake and the Arizona Republican Party:

Be afraid.

Very, very afraid.

Voters in the conservative Buckeye State on Tuesday embraced a citizen initiative to enshrine abortion in Ohio's constitution.

Meanwhile, over in Virginia, voters handed control of that state’s General Assembly to Democrats in the face of Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin’s vow to ban abortion after 15 weeks except in the case of rape or incest or to save the life of the mother.

Ohio is the seventh state — including both red and blue ones — in which voters have proclaimed that the right to abortion should be protected in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade last year.

Did I say Lake and the GOP should be afraid?

How about terrified?

Especially as the conservative Arizona Supreme Court is actually considering a return to the 19th Century — specifically whether to reinstate a Civil War-era law that actually criminalizes abortion. A hearing is set for Dec. 12, on the eve of a crucial election year in this swing state.



Kari Lake shouldn't just be terrified, she should be certified (insane).
