Ohio House passes anti-choice bill
This bill, pulled from the "Parents Know Best" strategy (read our post on 5 conservative anit-choice strategies), was passed with an overwhelming majority in the Ohio House. This does not bode well for women in the Buckeye State:
Under a bill passed on a 64-33 vote Tuesday, a judge considering whether to let a girl bypass the parental consent requirement would have to collect evidence that she understands the impacts of having an abortion. The judge also must ask the girl if she was coached on how to answer such questions.
I guess having an abortion is a much bigger decision than having a child? How did we get to a point in the abortion discussion where the pregnant woman doesn't matter?
