Virginia’s next Governor, Ralph Northam speaking this past weekend about Ohio Gov. John Kasich signing extreme anti-choice legislation that takes away a woman’s constitutional right to choose after twenty weeks of pregnancy, and how he will stand up to that type of garbage as Governor of Virginia. Needless to say, we will get a VERY different outcome if anti-choice Republicans like Corey Stewart, Frank Wagner or Ed Gillespie are elected. Let’s make sure THAT doesn’t happen next year!
But I want to tell you what happened yesterday in Ohio. I don’t know if anybody’s been looking at the news. Yesterday, they passed a bill in Ohio that says that you cannot do an abortion after 20 weeks, even – even if a physician like me sits down with the mother and father and says that your child is no longer viable. What they just did in Ohio, they said that they’re going to get between the doctor and the patient, and saying despite your discussion, despite what you want to do, we’re going to make you continue to carry that fetus that is no longer viable that will not be able to take in a breath of oxygen, but we’re going to make you carry to term. Is that right? I mean. And let me just tell you one more bill that passed in Ohio yesterday, it’s called the Heartbeat Bill. That means that there cannot be abortions after six weeks of age. Now again, for you men, I know you don’t understand this, but this is between me and the women. How many women do you think know that they’re pregnant when they’re five or six weeks pregnant? That’s missing just one cycle. That happens all the time. But what they want to do in Ohio is essentially ban abortions. We cannot go back to the days before Roe v. Wade, we cannot let that happen.
