Ohio city votes to ban abortion, declares itself 'sanctuary city for the unborn' (AP)

Ohio city votes to ban abortion, declares itself ‘sanctuary city for the unborn’
AP via Channel 11 Pittsburgh


LEBANON, Ohio (AP) — A southwest Ohio city became the first in the state Tuesday to enact a measure outlawing abortion and declaring itself “a sanctuary city for the unborn,” setting itself up for a likely legal challenge by opponents who call the ban unconstitutional.

The vote by Lebanon City Council was unanimous -- after one member quit in protest. The Cincinnati Enquirer reported that that member, Krista Wyatt, said she could no longer associate her name with the body “as a respectable, decent human being.”

No abortion clinics are located in Lebanon and none are planned. Mayor Amy Brewer said the ordinance sends a signal that the community would not welcome such a facility. Abortion remains legal in Ohio and the rest of the country following a 1973 Supreme Court decision that women have a constitutional right to seek an abortion.

7. Good.

Drop off all children who were forced to be born on the doorsteps of all the citizens there. Let those fuckers raise 'em. This forced birth bullshit will end real quick.

This is a bit paraphrased from one of Bill Hicks' bits about anti choice assholes. He said to drop them off on the steps of the supreme court. Works either way.

8. The only true sanctuary for the unborn

is a mother who wants a child. Abortion is ONLY the woman's decision.

9. How many homeless minors or neglected minors or minors living in poverty in this city ???

So damn focused on the unborn, they could give two shits about the struggling minors in their city !!!


It would be better for all, if this city focused on parents (men) who don't pay their share of child support.

Anyone can have a baby, lets take care of the ones we have ,before we worry about the unborn cause as soon as they are born this city will no longer care!!!!!

10. "No abortion clinics are located in Lebanon and none are planned"

 

The usual culture war pointless nonsense from these conservative clowns. They are incapable of governing, so all their moves are symbolic stupidities.

15. We need to set up abortion clinics just over the border from OH and IN, in Michigan.

Right along side our legal MJ dispensaries.

21. I bet they are.

That area of OH can be more like KY. Whereas, Toledo and Cleveland are more like PA and MI.

17. They all huff and puff and collect money, in their hearts they really don't care

it's about making themselves look like caring people but it is just a way to scam money from people. If abortion really ends so does the money.

19. I'd like to know how many unwanted orphans (of color) they're adopted into their homes?

Make a real sanctuary, effers. Open a free maternity clinic/orphanage/school. Go for it. Let's see what a sanctuary really looks like.
