Despite the massive variety of beer, wine, and meads we have around this state, and our fantastically CHEAP rent - there are many things that make me foam at the mouth angry about my state.
It is now up to good ol’ governor Kasich (The previously SANE choice for president), a former member of Ohio-Right-to-Life, to veto a bill banning abortion after 6 weeks.
6 fucking weeks.
Most women don’t know they’re pregnant until 12-14 weeks - and a huge number of miscarriages happen between 8 and 12 weeks.
It’s perfectly possible to be 6 weeks pregnant and not have “missed” a period yet.
Bills like this have been shot down by the Ohio senate 3 times - but according to yay voters this time around, TRUMP’s election and the murky fate of the supreme court made them take the chance this time.
This law has been declared unconstitutional in 2 other states - but if it passes in Ohio, and our federal district judge declares it constitutional, then it’s back up to the Supreme Court…
So please- if you’re in Ohio - call Kaisich’s office. It only takes about 3 minutes.
Kasich’s office number ls: (614) 466-3555
And say this: “I am concerned about the passage of the so-called "Heartbeat Bill.” This bill threatens the safety of Ohio women, was passed secretively and unconstitutionally, and violates a woman’s right to choose. I implore Governor Kasich to use his line item veto against the bill.“
Or something similar. It’s a very, very long shot, given Kasich’s track record on abortion - but if enough people call.
