Abortion rights are on the ballot

Republican war on women

"Kate Cox wrote in an op-ed, her doctors advised her that her fetus’s condition is incompatible with life. But she lives in Texas, where that’s not a good enough reason to be able to obtain an abortion. Cox filed a lawsuit, attempting to get legal permission for an abortion under the exemption for people with a “life-threatening physical condition.” A stillbirth can be very dangerous for any mother... A Travis County district judge granted a restraining order allowing her to get an abortion.

In stepped Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, fresh off escaping an attempted impeachment for egregious alleged corruption... He demanded that the Texas Supreme Court reverse the district court ruling, and separately threatened the hospitals where Cox’s doctors work, as well as any other medical provider that would give Cox potentially lifesaving care, mentioning “first degree felony prosecutions, and civil penalties of not less than $100,000 for each violation.” Sure enough, the Supreme Court did as Paxton asked. Cox ended up fleeing to another state to get the abortion." - The American Prospect

Ballot measures

Since the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision that had protected abortion rights nationally, voters in all seven states that held a statewide vote have backed access. That includes Ohio, where voters Tuesday enshrined abortion access in the state constitution. - PBS
