Ohio promotes pseudoscience and harms its most vulnerable women by banning abortions at 20 weeks

Ohio Govenor John Kasich vetoed the 6-week abortion ban based on a fetal heartbeat, but accepted the 20-week abortion ban based on fetal pain. While the 6-week ban would have been absurd, the 20 week ban is also horrible. First off, this bill is based entirely on pseudoscience.
