Pro-Life Progress in OH Upsets the Left

Pro-life advocates are pushing for new restrictions on abortions in Ohio — a move that's become more common in recent years.

The pro-life lobby is in favor of legislation that'd outlaw abortion after twenty weeks of pregnancy, and also after a Down Syndrome diagnosis has been made.

Pro-lifers gathered Tuesday at the OH House and Senate in Columbus to indicate their support for the legislative changes to be made before recess, which is in June. Also, Keith Faber, the Senate president and a Republican, has said there will probably be legislation passed concerning the requirement of burial or cremation of fetal remains.

The two proposals in OH seek to make clear existing laws and assistance ensure the unborn are treated with dignity, the bills’ Republican sponsors say.

On Wednesday, abortion advocates came out in Columbus to articulate their side of the argument.

But the trend seems to be shifting more towards the Right in recent years. Since one thousand nine hundred ninety-one, eighty-one % of all abortion clinics have been closed, with much of that modify happening in the most recent years, according to an Operation Rescue Survey.

The survey also shows that today, the United States has five hundred seventeen surgical abortion clinics and two hundred thirteen medication abortion clinics. This is the lowest no of such clinics in the past few decades.

In two thousand-fifteenth, fifty-three abortion clinics closed, while another twenty-eight reduced services.

"We have a pro-life state going here, but there is never sufficient until abortion ends," Paul Coudron, the executive director of Dayton Right to Life, told Dayton Daily News.

Kellie Copeland of NARAL ProChoice OH has also been vocal on the subject. "What is dreary is that the OH Legislature has been so gerrymandered that these politicians have chosen their constituents," she told the Dayton Daily News. "And OH voters have been disenfranchised. Anti-choice advocates are exploiting that to pass legislation that doesn't have the support of the majority of Ohioans and which endangers women’s health."

This isn't the first time the OH legislature has mandated restrictions on abortion. The legislative body has been passing laws love this one for years.

Among the restrictions passed in Ohio: Ultrasounds are required before an abortion procedure; Planned Parenthood has been defunded; abortion clinics are required to have transfer agreements with a hospital, or have a waiver: public hospitals aren't to have transfer agreements with clinics; abortion has been outlawed after twenty weeks: and state rape counselor aren't to mention abortion as an option.

OH has joined many other states in putting stringent restrictions on abortion.
