Ohio Gov. Kasich Vetoes Heartbeat Bill, Signs 'Horrific' 20-Week Abortion Ban

Nadia Prupis, staff writer

Ohio Governor John Kasich (R) on Tuesday signed a 20-week abortion ban into law, ensuring that reproductive rights in the state remain under attack even as he vetoed the more controversial "heartbeat" bill that would have banned abortions as early as six weeks.

The new law, known as SB 127, bans abortions after 20 weeks and does not include exceptions for rape or incest.

Here we go with conservatives forcing their ideologies on us, denying our freedom and liberties, telling us how they expect us to live our lives and forcing us to do so all under the guise of "saving unborn babies". No its not about saving unborn babies. Its the usual paternalistic ways of violating a woman's right to her own body. I'm not fooled by the conservative think tank spin.

“Abolition of a woman's right to abortion, when and if she wants it, amounts to compulsory maternity: a form of rape by the State.” --Edward Abbey

And during the Rep Primary, people were supposed to think that this guy was some rational alternative.

Just another Patriarchal Asshole.

Abortion is a WOMEN'S ISSUE that should be decided by WOMEN.
