Despite Court Meddling, Ohio Passes Laws to Protect the Unborn

Published

on

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.

Hispanic Oregon Candidate Fesses Up to Committing a Race Hoax

Published

on

A race hustler recently admitted to writing a racist letter to himself.

Jonathan Lopez, a candidate for Umatilla County commissioner, fessed up to writing an anonymous racist letter on July 6, 2020.

According to the Washington Times, Lopez claimed to have received the letter in June.

But he then confessed to the police that he was the individual who wrote the letter, the East Oregonian reported.

Lopez is Hispanic and claimed that he found a letter directed to him which was allegedly filled with racist language on June 23. He published the photo of a typed letter on Facebook, which hundreds of users shared in a span of 24 hours. Since then, the post has been removed.

Things changed, though, when police did a follow-up with Lopez about the incident on July 3. Law enforcement officials recounted that Lopez confessed to being the author of the letter.

“The time spent on this fictitious claim means time lost on other matters, not to mention it needlessly adds to the incredible tension that exists in our nation today,” Hermiston Police Chief Jason Edmiston said to the newspaper.

Edmiston then said the case would be sent over to the Umatilla County District Attorney’s office. From there it would be reviewed for initiating a false report, which is a Class A misdemeanor in Oregon.

Lopez ended up losing a primary election for a seat on the Umatilla County Board of Commissioners in May 2020.

In correspondence with the East Oregonian, Lopez claimed that he wanted to have a discussion with Edmiston about racism in Umatilla County. He used the letter as an example of the alleged racism that people experienced on a daily basis.

“I never meant to file a report, it just kind of spiraled out,” he stated. Lopez added that he “never meant to mislead” the public.

America is going through a late stage of political correctness, where all sorts of grievance politics is encouraged against normal Americans.

A polity with such internal turmoil is destined for social instability sooner or later.
