How About Some Good News??
Powerful pro-life progress is happening in Ohio!
The Ohio House has sent to Governor Mike DeWine a bill that protects the lives of babies born alive after botched abortions — potentially charging doctors with a felony and fines if they fail to provide medical care to an infant born after a failed abortion.
A big impact: this bill could result in closing Women’s Med Center in the Dayton area and Planned Parenthood of Southwest Ohio in Cincinnati. Both of these abortion clinics operate without transfer agreements to local hospitals. Instead, these clinics entered consulting agreements with local physicians, thanks to variances granted by the Ohio Department of Health. This bill, SB 157, would revoke those variances.
Ironically, Ohio is one of a handful of states where this type of legislation is perhaps not so necessary: abortion is already illegal after 20 weeks’ gestation.
“As California doubles down on abortion, Ohio is protecting more babies from botched abortions,” says Susan S. Arnall, Esq., Director of Outreach and Engagement for the Right to Life League. “The vote to pass the measure was along party lines. Supporting pro-life candidates is savings babies in Ohio.”
