Why is this still even a thing?

I’ll keep this post short.

If you want to defend women’s reproductive freedoms and Constitutional rights, consider signing the ACLU’s petition urging Governor Kasich to veto the new legislation banning abortion after six weeks.

Not only is this law batshit crazy, but it sends a pretty clear signal about what the fight for women’s rights is going to look like for the next four years. Let’s send an equally strong signal back!

Update: Since this post, Governor Kasich has vetoed  the 6-week “heartbeat bill,” but has joined 15 other states in signing an (equally unconstitutional) bill banning abortion after 20 weeks. This veto was a small victory, but the fight for women’s reproductive rights is by no means won.
