A new bill that would ban abortion in Ohio has been introduced by Statehouse Republicans.  A similar bill calling for a total ban was introduced last year but didn’t pass. So why is this bill being introduced now?

An Ohio Senate committee is set to hear from opponents of a bill that would provide what’s being called “reversed abortions.”

Chemical abortions require two pills to be taken 72 hours apart. Barry Sheets with the Right to Life Action Coalition of Ohio said abortions can be reversed before that second pill is taken, especially when progesterone is prescribed within hours after taking the first pill.
