More Lammo moves by Ohio Legislature
Once again signaling their determination to push divisive partisan legislation during the lameduck session, Republican legislators revived an extreme anti-abortion law and voted it out of committee today. The bill, HB 239, has been essentially dormant since it was introduced by Rep. Michelle Schneider (R) in May.
The proposed law declares that "it is the public policy of the state to prefer childbirth over abortion to the extent that is constitutionally permissible." It expands the current prohibitions against the use of state funds and facilities for "non-therapeutic abortions" or for insurance coverage for same, and against public employees performing "non-therapeutic abortions," by redefining that term to include pregnancies resulting from rape or incest or that threaten the mental or physical health of the mother.

The Dems should get out of the car for this one too. Not even vote on it. Let's see where all the GOPers really stand without the no vote cover from Dems. Let's go into 2008 with a serious contrast issue. If anyone was paying attention in 2006 they would have noticed that even South Dakota is sick of this shit - and we are a blue state now.
