Despite Court Meddling, Ohio Passes Laws to Protect the Unborn

Published

Ohio has brought itself national attention for its pro-life policies over the last few years.

Currently, Ohio state law bans abortion after the 22nd week of pregnancy.

While the courts are challenging some of Ohio’s previously passed pro-life laws, Ohio elected officials passed two pieces of new pro-life legislation according to a Catholic Herald report.

On Wednesday, November 6, 2019, the Ohio Senate approved Senate Bill 155 by a 22-10 vote. The bill requires doctors to let a mother know that there are ways to potentially reverse a chemical abortion in case they change their mind. The vote occured on strict party lines, with only one Republican voting alongside Democrats against the bill.

Last month, on October 6, the senate additionally passed Senate Bill 208 on partisan lines. This bill mandates abortionists to report to the state Department of Health in the case that a child is born alive after an abortion, and provide the necessary medical care to keep the baby alive. All Senate Democrats voted “nay.”

Currently, Ohio law prohibits abortion after 22 weeks of pregnancy, and has several other abortion laws in effect which are being addressed in federal courts. In April 2019, Governor Mike DeWine signed a bill into law which would have banned abortion after the detection of a fetal heartbeat. Earlier in July a federal judge blocked that bill.

In December 2017, Ohio’s previous governor John Kasich signed a bill into law that would ban abortion after a child was diagnosed before birth with Down syndrome. A federal court was able to block that bill in March 2018 eight days before it was supposed to go into effect.

States like Alabama and Ohio have led the way in passing pro-life legislation when the federal government has lagged on the issue.

Like gun rights, abortion is an issue where pro-freedom policy will likely have to be passed at the state level before it makes its way up to the federal level.

Flashback: Ann Coulter Warns Steve Bannon about Donald Trump’s Hires During 2016

Coulter tells it like it is.

Earlier this week, former White House adviser Steve Bannon reached out to President Donald Trump, in an apparent move to reconcile with the president. Bannon was one of the more renowned advisors in the Trump administration who received a lot of attention for his unconventional views. The former White House adviser is likely looking for Trump to pardon him for several federal criminal charges that he is currently facing.

Bannon was one of the strongest contrarian voices on the right who questioned traditional conservative dogma on free trade and immigration. His rise to prominence represented a raw, populist anger that was building within the Republican Party base. Bannon ended up leaving the Trump administration after the infamous Charlottesville rally. This left a massive void for populist voices within the Trump brain trust, which was never adequately filled with populist figures.

Most of the strong populist voices during the Trump era came from the outside. Conservative commentator Ann Coulter has been one of the leading figures trying to steer populist discourse in America.Although a harsh critic, Coulter did her best to hold President Trump accountable and watch his every move, especially personnel decisions that did not align with his America first vision. To the average pro-Trump individual, Coulter’s criticism may come off as abrasive, but it was and still is  necessary to have a viable nationalist movement.

As a reminder to her followers about how she knew that there were subversive elements in the Trump administration who wanted to gut the president’s America First agenda and pursue more traditional Republican policies, she tweeted about email correspondence she had with Bannon dating back to December 2, 2016. In light of the rapprochement between Bannon and Trump, Coulter called attention to how she warned the former White House adviser about some of the latter’s questionable staffing decisions during the early stages of his presidency.

Coulter tweeted, “No, actually, I knew Trump was betraying us pretty early on – and that it would cost him re-election. My December 2, 2016 email to Steve Bannon:”

In an email sent on December 2, 2016 with a subject line titled “ghost of christmas future”, Coulter warned then-White House adviser Bannon about some of Trump’s hiring decisions.

She first noted that “the fact that Trump is even CONSIDERING rep. Mccaul (rubio in the house) for homeland — and is NOT considering kobach— tells me we’re not getting any major deportations, no removal of refugees, no e-verify, no end to end anchor babies… and trump will be dead.

also, “mad dog” isn’t going to build a wall.”

She was referring to Texas Congressman Michael McCaul, a known mass migration booster and a potential nominee for the head of the Department of Homeland Security. United States Marine Corps General James Matthis would be Trump’s first Secretary of Defense, who ended up turning out to be a Deep State hack. On the other hand, Kris Kobach is a nationally recognized immigration hawk, who gained fame for implementing some of the stiffest voter ID standards in the nation during his time as Secretary of State.

The Trump administration was successful in implementing several administrative changes that limited immigration and also did not get involved in any nation-building engagements like previous administrations.

Nevertheless, Coulter’s incisive suggestions still have use for future Republican administrations. The new GOP should follow Coulter’s pro-migration restriction suggestions if it wants to not only remain politically relevant, but also protect the integrity of America’s political system.
