There’s a Bill to Ban All Abortions in Ohio

In shocking news, a group of Republican lawmakers are trying to ban all abortions in the state of Ohio, under a bill introduced Monday. The bill, HB 565, would allow the state to make all abortions illegal — even in cases of rape, incest, or danger to a woman’s life.

Under the proposed bill, both doctors that provide abortions and pregnant women who seek them could face criminal charges. The bill would consider a fetus an “unborn human” — and therefore, abortion would be considered homicide.

In other words, abortions could be punishable by a lifetime prison sentence or even the death penalty.
