PoliticsOhio: Push Underway To Protect Fertilized Embryos Under Ohio Constition
For this week's edition of PoliticsOhio, Emily McCord speaks with Ohio Public Radio Statehouse News Bureau's Jo Ingles who reported earlier this week that a new political action committee was being formed to help pass the bill that would ban abortions at the point a fetus’s heartbeat can be detected. But she says stricter limits on abortion are also being considered by this group, including a drive that would protect a fetus under the Ohio consitution. Ingles also speaks about the implications of Secretary of State Jon Husted's rejection of the over 1,000 signatures submitted by Democrats to put a repeal of the state's new congressional districts on the 2012 ballot, and gives an update on the "Occupy Wallstreet" movement in Ohio.
