Here is my latest statement on behalf of the Central Conference of American Rabbis about the Ohio State Legislature’s latest attack on women HB493.
Please call and write Govenor Kasich. Ask him to veto the Ohio bill HB 493 which would destroy woman’s lives. Yesterday the Ohio house attached a ” Heartbeat” provision to an unrelated bill. This would make it a fifth degree felony if the woman sought an abortion after a heartbeat was detected often before she knows she is pregnant. (Which could be at 6-8 weeks tho the fetus is no bigger than a lentil). It’s clearly unconstitutional according to Roe v Wade which permits abortion up until the 2nd trimester. This is a new shot across the bow to strip away choice and yet another anti-woman law.
Governor John Kasich

Contact Gov Kasich to ask him to veto this heinous proposed legislation. http://ccarnet.org/about-us/news-and-events/ccar-denounces-proposed-ohio-bill-restrict-womens-reproductive-l/
