Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand reproductive-freedom curtailing words. Here’s the lovely Ohio governor, John Kasich (R), surrounded by a bunch of dudes, of course, signing a budget which contains severe anti-chose provisions.
The new budget, which takes effect on Monday, and was signed Sunday, will defund Planned Parenthood clinics, reallocate family planning resources to “crisis pregnancy centers,” deny funding to rape crisis centers that deign to give out any information about abortion services, shutter abortion clinics by imposing restrictions, and force doctors to tell women who want an abortion about a b.s. study linking abortion to breast cancer and the “fetal heartbeat.”
Kasich waxed poetic: “There is no reason why Ohio cannot reclaim prominence. There is no reason why Ohio cannot be the greatest state in all of the states of the great country of America. We can get there…There is no reason why Ohio cannot take its rightful place on the mountaintop.”
I guess the path to the mountain top happens to go through our uteri.
