Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine signed a bill into law that outlaws abortions as soon as a heartbeat is detected, but a Democrat legislator tried to make sure that black babies could still be slaughtered.
Janine Boyd, a Democrat, proposed Amendment 0291, which provides an exception for black mothers. Boyd thought it important that blacks continued to be exterminated, even though white babies were protected by the new law.
Oddly enough, Boyd used the motif of slavery to argue to the exception.
“Black slaves were once treated like cattle and put out to stud in order to create generations of more slaves. Our country is not far enough beyond our history to legislate as if it is.”
Allowing two consenting adults to procreate of their own volition, without the legal right to kill their kids, is like “slavery” to Janine Boyd.
Republicans, on the others hand, defended the rights of all babies and argued that laws should be made without skin color in mind.
The amendment did not pass, thankfully.
