I Went Back to Ohio, and My Sense Was Gone

With apologies to the Rubber City's most prolific rocker, it wasn't the city that's gone: it's your rights as a woman!  On Tuesday the Ohio House of Representatives passed House Bills 125 and 78, limiting a woman's rights to seek an abortion after a heartbeat is detected and outlawing abortions after 20 weeks

With job loss at an all time high (9.1 is not your floor exercise score, Republican majority: it's the unemployment rate), the Republican legislature decides that their most important duty is to push through the most draconian abortion legislation in the nation.  How does that create jobs?  And how the hell is that going to attract workers and business owners over the border?

Republicans are big on states rights.  Well, I guess there are those around Capitol Square who believe that Ohio has the right to drag its citizens right back to the 1500s.

Maybe they can get a bill passed soon celebrating the Earth's 6000th birthday.
