Imagine you're an anti-choice state legislator. You want to introduce extreme anti-choice bills, but every time you do this, people wonder why you're focusing on attacking women's health care instead of creating jobs and growing the economy. So what do you do?
How about sneaking your anti-choice attack into a budget bill at the last minute, without any public commentary? And then turning your phone off so that you don't have to hear from your outraged constituents?
It is obvious that Ohio Senate leaders know this move is shameful; they waited until the eleventh hour to launch this attack so that no public testimony opposing these dangerous measures could be heard. They've even stopped answering their phones.
It's just further evidence that anti-choice politicians will advance their War on Women
by any means necessary. Kudos to NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio
for catching them in the act.
