Ohio state lawmakers introduce bill to ban all abortions

A bill has been introduced in the Ohio state House of Representatives that would ban all abortions in the state.

Two Republican lawmakers introduced the legislation, which would block women from receiving abortions even when a mother's life is in danger or in cases of rape or incest, Cleveland.com reported.

Rep. Ron Hood (R), a sponsor of the bill, said he believes life begins at conception.

"The goal of this bill is to first of all continue to get the word out that life does begin at conception and move the debate in that direction, and to protect unborn Ohioans from being aborted," Hood said. Rep. Nino Vitale (R), another sponsor, said that women who are raped and become pregnant sometimes regret getting an abortion.

"Life isn't always giving us things by our choice and I don't want to put a woman through a second trauma after she's been through such an awful first one," Vitale said.

Under the bill, a woman who gets an abortion could be charged with a crime.

Kellie Copeland, NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio executive director, said in a statement that "anti-choice extremists from the Ohio Statehouse to the White House are lining up their dominoes to topple Roe v. Wade and punish those who seek or provide abortion care."

Earlier this month, a federal judge in Ohio temporarily blocked a law from going into effect that would ban abortions on the basis of Down syndrome.

U.S. District Judge Timothy Black wrote the ban is unconstitutional.

The law, signed by Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) in December, would ban abortions if a Down syndrome diagnosis was one of the reasons a woman sought the procedure.

KEYWORDS:
The bill declares a baby to be a legal person from the moment of conception. A good thing, but, sadly, something that will likely be ruled unconstitutional by the leftists on the court. Still trying to figure out where in the US Constitution, the right to murder one’s offspring shall not be infringed upon.

Fetus just means child or offspring. Never meant unborn blob of cells. They use the term in the wrong was to confuse the sheeple.

Pointless gesture. It will never fly. Pro life legislators have been on the right track requiring abortionists to meet standards of “health care” which they cannot meet. Use their own lie against them.

Govt’s few/defined roles is to protect (innocent) life; Justice can be met by govt taking the same.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed...”

Course, lawyers\judges (I repeat myself) can’t seem to read/follow/comprehend the clear English of these documents

Good. Conservatives took a page from the leftist playbook for a change.

All leftists and activist judges should be declared “unconstitutional,” “nonviable,” and “treasonous.” Then we may “abort” them - preferably by away of a firing squad.

“... abortion care.”

Just let THAT bloody gobbet of cognitive dissonance set out and molder for a bit.

“abortion care”

Not even Orwell could come up with a phrase like that.
