Senate Bill 106 a threat to reproductive freedom | Editorials

A recent column written by Judy Ward on her sponsored Senate Bill 106 claims that her proposed constitutional amendment “does not propose a ban on abortion.” I’m impressed with the incredible rotation. If it does nothing, why suggest it? If you’re not entitled to something, isn’t that the same thing? This implies that your request is subject to the whim of the person from whom it is made. It is deliberately unclear and will have the same effect with medical providers etc. refusing to provide services due to its deliberate obscurity. We are already seeing the terrible effects of such legislation in other states.

I’m running against Ward for the 30th district seat. I am also a former lawyer, counselor and educator. I am trained to read and understand legislation and its impact.
