Why we need Roe

News & Politics
Diffident pro-choicers like to excuse their Roe apathy by saying that it's no big deal of abortion reverts to thee states. After all, abortion will always be legal in New York and California. So, women who need abortions can just travel to states where abortion is legal. (Scott Lemieux offers a case in point.)

Not so fast. Ohio state legislators drafting a bill to make it illegal not only to get an abortion in Ohio, but also to leave Ohio to terminate a pregnancy:
Getting to know Ohio's House Bill 228:
  • Sponsored by Ohio Rep. Tom Brinkman, R- Mount Lookout, and 16 other representatives.
  • Make it illegal for a woman to have an abortion and for her to travel across state lines for an abortion.
  • Anyone involved in coordinating an abortion would face penalties as well.
