In Ohio, as we know, every sperm is sacred and so when you turn to Indiana for help, well the world is upside down (emphasis mine):
On Monday three days after the Supreme Court issued its groundbreaking decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, Dr. Caitlin Bernard, an Indianapolis obstetrician-gynecologist, took a call from a colleague, a child abuse doctor in Ohio.
Hours after the Supreme Court action, the Buckeye state had outlawed any abortion after six weeks. Now this doctor had a 10-year-old patient in the office who was six weeks and three days pregnant.
Could Bernard help?
An abused 10-year old child becomes a case study for the exact thing every liberal everywhere warned that the Christofascist clerics, and militia tribesmen were going to force upon women of all ages just happened, thanks to our #IllegitimatSCOTUS.
FYI, Indiana’s anti-abortion law has not yet triggered.
Meanwhile, speaking of Ohio Christofascist clerics and elders, Mean Jean Schmidt wants to ban contraception next:
CLEVELAND, Ohio — State Rep. Jean Schmidt, a Clermont County Republican, said during a radio interview this week that she would entertain a debate about outlawing birth control in the wake of the United States Supreme Court overturning constitutional protections for abortion.
Schmidt made the comments during a Wednesday interview with 700WLW’s Bill Cunningham in which she also said companies that provide travel expenses for employees to get abortion care could face legal consequences. Schmidt is the sponsor of a bill in the state legislature that would eliminate abortion from the time of conception, effectively outlawing it in the state.
“When we get back into session, we’ll probably have one or two more hearings on it and then it will go before our body and the Senate for a concurrent vote,” Schmidt said. “I do believe we have the votes in both chambers, and we have the full support of the governor on this bill.”
Famously, Mean Jean has said that having your rapist’s baby is an opportunity for stronger families.
