  • Ohio's legislature is considering a "trigger law" that would ban abortion if the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade.
  • The bill makes performing an abortion a fourth degree felony and imposes new restrictions on doctors.
  • An Ohio legislator said that a pregnancy resulting from rape could be an "opportunity" for the victim.

The lack of respect for women is astounding. And these are all people that probably expect a maximum of respect from their constituents. Well, maybe not Larry Lockman; he's just your average every day, letters-to-the-editor, asshole and he admits it.

Wait. What? Is this from The Onion? It has to be. Nobody with a working brain would utter those words.

An opportunity? What in the everlasting ****??

The Republicans are spiraling more and more each day towards the drain. It's time to flush them for the protection of everyone.

"It is a shame that it happens, but there's an opportunity for that woman, no matter how young or old she is, to make a determination about what she's going to do to help that life be a productive human being," Schmidt said.

Thats a disgusting comment to make regarding a victim of sexual assault.

Look at her face. She knows this is a lie and she would not want any female members of her family subject to it, but it's good enough for everyone else.

This is where the Ohio GOP is. It's not The Onion.
