Perennial mainstream media darling and establishment dreamboat Governor John Kasich revealed his latest betrayals to Ohio conservatives on Monday- and they’re both whoppers of the highest order.
Speaking to reporters at the Ohio Statehouse, Kasich confirmed that he would use his veto powers to override not one, but two major conservative policy victories, both of which are set to be passed by both chambers of the Ohio Legislature.
The first piece of legislation Kasich is poised to stop is a pro-life ‘Heartbeat Bill,’ that would prohibit abortions performed on babies with a medically discernible heartbeat in the state of Ohio. Although Kasich has (apparently falsely) billed himself as ‘pro-life,’ this would be the second time that’s he’s nuked legislation that could save “upwards of 10,000 lives a year,” according to Ohio Citizens for Community Values President Aaron Baer. Kasich earlier vetoed Heartbeat Legislation in 2016, explaining that he was simply unwilling to fight a battle on behalf of the pro-life cause against a corrupt judiciary.
Unfortunately, pro-lifers don’t seem to be the only conservatives Kasich is content to take for a ride as he pivots from his final months as Ohio governor to a potential 2020 Republican Presidential campaign challenging President Donald Trump.
Kasich also plans to veto a self-defense ‘Stand Your Ground’ bill, that would give Ohio residents to right to defend themselves appropriately if confronted with a realistic and serious threat to themselves. The legislation would remove language from Ohio’s laws mandating a “duty to retreat” in life-threatening situations.
However, Kasich’s obstruction may not be enough to permanently block these two bills from becoming law. Both passed the Ohio House of Representatives with veto-proof support, and Ohio Republicans have a 24-9 majority in the State Senate. Incoming Ohio Governor Mike DeWine also has signaled support for both policies, making Kasich’s vetoes seem like little more than a temporary irrelevance.
Perhaps Kasich’s focus has never been on permanently stopping conservative policy victories from being enshrined. The Ohio moderate could be looking beyond the end of his gubernatorial tenure, hoping to receive thirty pieces of silver from New Hampshire primary voters.
President Donald Trump Pledges to “Fully Defund” Planned Parenthood If Reelected
Trump has governed as the most pro-life President in history.
President Trump is pledging to fully defund abortion giant Planned Parenthood during his tentative second term in office, making a pledge in a letter to the Pro-Life Voices for Trump coalition. In the letter, the President also touts the pro-life accomplishments of his administration.
The President breaks down how he’s “proudly governed as the most pro-life president in our nation’s history.”
The President touts his administration’s appointment of hundreds of pro-life judges, partial defunding of the abortion industry including Planned Parenthood, the barring of federal medical research facilities from using materials obtained from the bodies of aborted children, and the defense of personal conscience rights of physicians, medical personnel, and other professionals. Congressional Democrats have largely blocked a full defunding of Planned Parenthood, which continues to perform more abortions than any other organization in the country.
The President also touts his support for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would ban most late-term abortions.
Joe Biden, who is largely running for President on the basis of his supposedly impeccable and virtuous character, has supported total and unlimited legalization of abortion throughout his entire political career. The nominal Catholic went so far as to quote Pope St. John Paul II in a recent campaign ad, a nod to Catholic voters, all while silently disregarding his commitment to abortion on demand.
