Ohio’s Heartbeat Bill, which would have banned abortion as early as six weeks, is dead, and it’s all Mitt Romney’s fault.
So much for the heart-shaped balloons and the circus-like spectacle of a fetus “testifying” in the form of a live ultrasound before the legislature. But can the state that remains a bellwether for presidential elections tell us what’s to come in the next abortion-rights battles?
This week, Ohio’s Republican Senate president, Tom Niehaus, explicitly took President Obama’s win as a referendum on abortion rights, saying he’d told supporters that he would only allow a vote on the bill in the event of a Romney victory.
He also said the bill’s proponents were incredibly annoying, including to people ostensibly on their side.
political decisions should be made with all ramifications reviewed not base on one groups ideas as to whats right and what's not.
all through this year we have only heard women's voices on this very personal to them and most men topic on tv not in the decision making process Issa's all boyz panel discussing contraception, none of which as ever been pregnant or raped to pregnancy, they don't have same health requirements so tell me WTF were they discussing who had the best once a month joke?
