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.
