Another Abortion Showdown, This Time in Ohio's State Legislature
Texas isn't the only state with reproductive rights restrictions running amok.
Women in Ohio have taken calls to #StandWithWendy literally: Almost 100 pink- and red- wearing abortion rights activists have gathered outside the Capitol in Columbus, gearing up for a fight over a set of restrictions attached to the state budget.
Passage of this particular legislation would–for a start–cut support to Planned Parenthood, close most clinics, and redirect funds to so-called "crisis pregnancy centers." Oh, and that's not even to mention Ohio's additional giant anti-abortion bill that would mandate that doctors take an ultrasound before the procedure, which–get this–women would have to pay for themselves.
