    New anti-abortion attacks in 2020

    NARAL's The Morning After is a production is NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio.
    With the team back from the holiday break, Jaime, Gabe, and Kelley discussed new attacks from anti-choice Republicans already happening in 2020. 
    An amicus brief in June v. Gee was signed by 207 anti-choice members of Congress, including 11 men from Ohio. That case is basically a rehearing of 2016's pro-choice victory in Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt.
    In Cincinnati, Planned Parenthood of Southwest Ohio is working to meet politically-biased state requirements all while continuing to serve patients.

    Emails from Becker and Barry

    Emails from Becker and Barry

    NARAL's The Morning After is a production is NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio.
    With all of the anti-science bills in the Ohio Statehouse, we thought Jaime, Gabe, and Kelley should review. 
    This week, Cincinnati Enquirer reporter Jessie Balmert obtained emails from Equity Forward revealing the origin of the false idea legislators have about transplanting an ectopic pregnancy:
    "Clermont County Rep. John Becker, R-Union Township, didn't consult doctors about the medical procedure. Instead, he received regular input from Barry Sheets, a lobbyist for the Right to Life Action Coalition of Ohio, according to emails obtained through an Enquirer public records request. ...
    "Sheets offered line-item changes to Becker's House Bill 182, which would ban most private insurance coverage of abortions in Ohio. And the lobbyist helped Becker defend one of the bill's more controversial ideas: permitting health insurance to cover reinserting a fertilized egg that attaches outside the uterus – called an ectopic or tubal pregnancy – into the uterus."
    We all know this idea they're proposing — now in two separate House bills — is science fiction.

    The Total Abortion Ban returns

    The Total Abortion Ban returns

    NARAL's The Morning After is a production of NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio.
    This week, Gabe and Jaime discuss the November Democratic Debate, the family-centered legislative plans from the Ohio House Democratic Caucus, and House Bill 413, the new Total Abortion Ban that would charge abortion providers and patients with the death penalty. 
    At the end of the episode, we listen to some testimony from Jaime, along with Sarah Inskeep from URGE and Rev. Terry Williams from the Ohio Religious Coalition for Reproductive Rights. These three testified against House Bill 297, which would create a 50% tax credit for donors to fake women's health centers (AKA crisis pregnancy centers or CPCs). Video of that testimony is available at: http://ohiochannel.org/video/ohio-house-ways-and-means-committee-11-12-2019

    Three bad bills and one good clinic

    Three bad bills and one good clinic

    NARAL's The Morning After is a production of NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio.
    Following a pair of hearings and two floor votes this week, Kelley and Gabe are joined by Rev. Terry Williams from the Ohio Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice. 
    The Ohio Senate Committee on Health, Human Services, and Medicaid approved Senate Bill 155 and Senate Bill 208 on Tuesday, and there were floor votes in Ohio Senate session on Wednesday. The bills push harmful false narratives about abortion, and each would charge physicians with third degree felonies for not complying with medically unnecessary rules.
    In the Ohio House Committee on Ways and Means, House Bill 297 received its second hearing. This bill would create a tax CREDIT to give money from taxpayers to donors of fake women's health centers (AKA crisis pregnancy centers or CPCs).
    In Dayton, Kelley is continuing to organize supporters of Women's Med Center. That clinic took their fight from state court to the federal level.

Informational and engaging

NARAL is such an important organization and this podcast is a great way to stay informed about reproductive justice in America. As a listener from NY, the podcast is still meaningful even though I'm not from Ohio!
