I had a piece at MSNBC yesterday, about Ohio’s new sweeping reproductive healthcare restrictions, which make it the worst state in the country in which to seek an abortion.
What does it look like when seven men ignore seventeen thousand of their constituents?
It looks like this: Ohio’s Republican Governor John Kasich, flanked by six other men, signing the state’s new budget into law and, by doing so, catapulting the Buckeye State to the number one spot on the Nation’s Most Restrictive Abortion Laws list.
The budget strips funding from Planned Parenthood, the nation’s leading provider of reproductive healthcare, and gives that money to Crisis Pregnancy Centers, the pseudo-clinics that lure pregnant women with the promise of free ultrasounds and can then misinform them about abortions. That’s just the beginning.
