In the event you have not signed the petition demanding executive action from Governor Kasich to defund Planned Parenthood and all abortion centers in Ohio, please do so now by signing below.
It is extremely important that you sign this because Kasich has the power to defund Planned Parenthood now. The current bill being presented by Ohio Senate President Keith Faber is terribly flawed and accomplishes very little. You can read the bill here:sb214_00_IN.pdf.
Please keep in mind as you read this, that nontherapeutic abortions are defined in the Ohio Revised Code as such:
9.04 State funds for nontherapeutic abortion benefits.
(A) As used in this section:
(1) "Nontherapeutic abortion" means an abortion that is performed or induced when the life of the mother would not be endangered if the fetus were carried to term or when the pregnancy of the mother was not the result of rape or incest reported to a law enforcement agency.
As you can see, this bill makes rape and incest exceptions and will render very little change in the long run. Do we really trust Planned Parenthood to be honest in its record keeping when applying for funding? We must demand immediate and complete defunding of Planned Parenthood and quit settling for legislation that misses the target!
