Recently, Ohio Governor and Mr. Rogers facsimile, John Kasich, signed into law a bill which would foster upon the state a 20 week abortion ban. Stating,
“I agree with Ohio Right to Life and other leading, pro-life advocates that SB 127 is the best, most legally sound and sustainable approach to protecting the sanctity of human life,”
This would mean that any abortions after 20 weeks into a pregnancy would be illegal. Many political commentators are attempting to blame the decision, at least tangentially, upon Trump and Pence’s victory, due to the president-elects statements that he would “overturn Roe v. Wade.”
Another bill, a six week abortion ban which had been proposed, has been rejected by Mr. Kasich – citing it as “unconstitutional.” The governor’s opponent’s agree upon the six week bill’s unconstitutionality but also state that the 20 week bill is just as unconstitutional.
