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.

Baltimore’s Population Plummets as the City Becomes Dysfunctional
ZeroHedge recently reported on the dire state of Baltimore.
The city’s population fell below 600,000, as it is rocked by “record homicides, an opioid crisis, and now an economic depression risks sending the city deeper into chaos.”
The Baltimore Sun, cited new U.S. Census data released on March 26, 2020, which estimated that Baltimore’s population was 593,490 as of July 2019.
ZeroHedge provided some context to Baltimore’s imploding demographics:
To give you some perspective on the collapsing population trend in Baltimore. In 1950, the city had 950,000 residents. Now it has 593,490, which is a loss of 356,510 people, or about 37.5% of the entire population in seven decades.
“White flight”, the crack epidemic of the 1980s/1990s, and a complete mismanagement of the city, have led to its notable decline. As a result, many have fled the city altogether or have gone to Baltimore County and other surrounding counties.
Michael Rendall, the director of the Maryland Population Research Center and a sociology professor at the University of Maryland, College Park, said in the aftermath 2015 Baltimore Riots, no other counties surrounding the city witnessed a decline in the population.
The city’s plunging population, Rendall stated, “is not a phenomenon reflective of the overall metropolitan area.”
During the last year, Baltimore City saw 8,953 people leave the city, which is 1.5 percent of its population.
Putting this in perspective, when Democratic Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake was in office in 2014, the city had over 623,000 residents. In other words, the city has lost about 5% of its population in five years.
Ever since the riots, Baltimore’s economic growth has stagnated, homicides have been on the rise, and opioids have wreaked havoc on low-income neighborhoods. In 2019, Baltimore’s homicide rate
Given the shocking realities of its high crime, it’s shocking the city hasn’t even bothered to pass legislation that would help citizens arm themselves against the very real threat of criminals.
It also doesn’t help that the city has embraced many of the wacky criminal justice reforms which empower criminals, while law-abiding citizens are at the mercy of society’s most depraved.
Baltimore is Exhibit A of a failed city.
