Republican Lunacy in Ohio

It might be time for some Ohio Republicans to get out of their conservative bubble and start talking to Ohio's women. Republicans, especially the males, are so very concerned about what is going on inside a woman's reproductive organs that it seems rather weird. At the rate the Ohio GOP is going, they'll get only 5% of the female vote in the next election.

Here is the evidence from TheExaminer:

A new anti-abortion bill proposed by state Republicans could cost a woman $1 million and a felony charge if they want to have an abortion and don't disclose their personal income.

Republicans across the country have continued their attack on abortion rights over the years and the state of Ohio is continuing to follow the party in their footsteps. According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Rep. Ron Hood (R) has introduced House Bill 200 which has the support of over 30 state Republicans. The proposed anti-abortion bill, among other things, would charge women up to a million dollars and hit them with a possible felony charge if they don't disclose their personal income to their doctor prior to having an abortion.

In addition to the felony charge and $1 million fine, the new bill would double the waiting period for abortions from 24 to 48 hours. The new bill would also redefine what is considered a "medical emergency" when a waiver is being sought to "a condition that would result in the woman's death without an abortion, as opposed to one that presents a serious risk to her life or physical health."

Seriously, these Republicans are nuts!!!!!

Ohio's GOP has said that they are "rebranding" their party. Unfortunately, most women would consider the "new" Ohio GOP using prehistoric rules, regulations, and legislation to control women.

I'd like to see some legislation that makes males who seek erectile dysfunction drugs have to prove their (a) income, (b) lack of function to three doctors, and (c) have their names published online and in newspapers for seeking ED medication.
