Oklahoma may require restroom signs in anti-abortion effort

Oklahoma plans to force hospitals, nursing homes, restaurants and public schools to post signs inside public restrooms directing pregnant women where to receive services as part of an effort to reduce abortions in the state.

The State Board of Health will consider regulations for the signs on Tuesday. Businesses and other organizations will have to pay an estimated $2.3 million to put up the signs because the Legislature didn't approve any money for them.

The provision for the signs was tucked into a law that the Legislature passed this year that requires the state to develop informational material "for the purpose of achieving an abortion-free society." The signs must be posted by January 2018.

Sickening. Along with the bill Kasich signed today.

the punchline in the OK bill is that the legislature refused to fund the signs.

thanks for the head's up on the OH bill.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich vetoes heartbeat bill, signs 20-week abortion ban

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/ct-ohio-abortion-heartbeat-bill-20161213-story.html

Quote

Kasich, an abortion-rights opponent, chose instead to sign off on a 20-week ban similar to those now in effect in 15 states and blocked from enforcement in two others. The measures are based on the assertion that fetuses can feel pain then, which opponents characterize as scientifically unsound. Ohio lawmakers rejected a Democratic amendment that would have added exceptions for rape and incest.

 

all of the typical gross GOP things are part of this:

--bait and switch to make this one seem reasonable.

--based on lies, not science.

--no compassion for victims of crimes.

--likely to end up in court, and still probably lose, wasting taxpayer money.

There's just no end to the obsession with what women do with their bodies out there. Little doubt that it's not among the top priorities of rural policymakers around the country. Makes my skin crawl to think how much time and energy is devoted to the issue. If you thought the cabinet and staff appointments were bad, just wait until Trump's justice nomination! All the creeps out there will have free rein to rewrite decades of hard-fought reproductive rights.

Expect to hear more quotes being sourced from this new "report" in the coming days and weeks:

Incredibly lacking in facts and details, so pretty much grade A material for righties.

White women supported Trump over Hillary. Perhaps not every woman is a bitter old third wave feminist cat lady like trix?

Penias, lol dumb one and dingleberry think this is funny. I have to admit, I didn't actually think they were capable of stooping this low. Shame on me for even thinking there was a shred of decency left in these people.

She is doing something very feminine, artistic and fulfilling at this time during her hiatus from the news.

What he said to her was a classic example of condescending mansplaining. I find it very telling that you liked his post.

I can't imagine being a woman and dealing with a lifetime of such shitty insults. Male privilege really is a gift.

I liked his post because of the part about more white women voting for Trump, which is true. 

But of course, I realize facts don't matter around here.
