This week, Ohio continued to be at the forefront of the abortion debate. In the past few days, the Heartbeat Bill passed the Ohio Senate, Ohio Senate Democrats refused to condemn infanticide, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Planned Parenthood can be defunded, and abortionist Martin Haskell’s late term abortion facility faces closure.
Listen as Mark deals with each of these important developments one at a time.
First: On Wednesday, the Heartbeat Bill passed the Ohio Senate by a vote of 19-13 and now the bill heads over to the House of Representatives.
The difference between now and the past is Ohio has a governor who has pledged to sign the bill.
Second: Ohio Democrats and abortion groups refused to condemn infanticide.
The issue of Democrat support for post-birth abortions continues to have legs. This week, an Ohio Senate heard a resolution supporting the effort by the US Senate to pass the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. In committee, none of the Democrats voted for the resolution. In fact, freshman Senator Tina Maharath (D) was roundly rebuked by Chairman Dave Burke (R) for daring to say the committee had more important issues to spend their time on. He said, “it is absurd that a child would be left on a table after birth.”
NARAL’s deputy director Jaime Miracle was chided by Sen. Peggy Lehner for changing the subject of the infanticide debate from the babies who survive an abortion attempt to violence towards abortion providers.
Interestingly, foreseeing political peril ahead, when the measure was brought to full Senate, Democrats voted for the resolution.
Third: abortionist Martin Haskell’s late-term abortion facility got a hearing on revocation of his license.
Abortionist Martin Haskell has nine lives. That’s more than I can say for the thousands of babies he has butchered over the decades. Thankfully, Haskell’s killing machine is running out of legal options. We anticipate his killing center will finally be shuttered. Created Equal has played a part in this outcome.
Watch and listen to Mark discuss these issues and provide practical direction for every American who loves life.
