Breaking: Ohio Gov. John Kasich signs 20-week abortion ban into law; vetoes “heartbeat bill”

  • Last week, two separate abortion restrictions cleared the Ohio legislature and moved toward Gov. John Kasich’s desk. 
  • The one that dominated headlines was the “heartbeat bill,” it would have made it illegal for Ohio women to terminate a pregnancy after six weeks.
  • On Tuesday, Kasich signed the other one, the 20-week abortion ban, according to the Associated Press.
  • Despite its being unconstitutional under Roe v. Wade, the 20-week ban is more likely to hold up in court than the heartbeat bill.
  • Laws similar to the heartbeat bill have been struck down in North Dakota and Arkansas.

Mike Pence’s neighbors stand up with “This neighborhood trusts women” signs

  • Mike Pence’s neighbors rolled out their welcome wagon this week, planting NARAL Pro-Choice America signs in their lawns reading, “This neighborhood trusts women.”
  • According to DCist, some of the signs have even cropped up in front of the house directly across the street from the Pence family’s $6,000-a-month rental.
  •  NARAL’s communications director Kaylie Hanson Long told the outlet that the organization’s intention was to make their message crystal clear — and unavoidable.
  • “Part of our charge following the election is making sure that Mike Pence knew just how off base he was with the majority of Americans when it comes to abortion access,” she said.
  • “The best way to let him know that is to go literally right to his door step and tell him.” Read more
