(Reuters) - Ohio's governor signed a two-year, $62 billion state budget on Sunday that seeks to spur economic growth with a reduction in personal income taxes and includes a provision that critics say will tighten restrictions on abortions in the state.
This was passed without the normal debate or discussion.
How it got there is not the biggest scandal...that the governor signed it without vetoing that language IS!
I feel bad for my family and friends living in that state. Which Republican state is next? Michigan, Wisconsin?

I believe they also defined a fertilized egg as "life" in the language, meaning that anything that prevents implantation falls into the category that could trigger the ultrasound requirement and may even meet their definition of abortion.
Abortion may not be mentioned as an option during rape counseling or the clinic loses any state funding it receives.
Health Professionals are required to verbally provide scripted information to patients considering abortion that many do not agree with.
I wonder how many of the state's women, and the men who love them, would have approved of this law had anyone been given opportunity to discuss it. It is a done deal now.
ALL OF THE "BACKWARD THINKING",
BIG GOVERNMENT LANGUAGE IS now LAW...passed by a few white men for the betterment of society.
