Thank you Mason City Council
On Monday, City of Mason, Ohio (pop. 35,450), the largest city in Warren County, became the second city in Ohio and 41st in the nation to pass an enforceable ordinance outlawing abortion within its city limits.
Elections have consequences. Mason residents must consider these results when casting their votes Tuesday, November 2. Please share this email with neighbors, friends and relatives in Mason. Vote for LIFE!
The ordinance which passed by a 4-3 vote after the second reading, will go into effect November 24th, 30 days after Monday's vote. We thank Mayor Kathy Grossman, joined by council members T.J. Honerlaw, Mike Gilb, and Tony Bradburn for voting in favor of the ordinance outlawing abortion. Council members Ashley Chance, Diana Nelson, and Josh Styrcula voted against the measure.
The Mason Ordinance Outlawing Abortion states:
“The Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113 (1973), which invented a constitutional right for pregnant women to kill their unborn children through abortion, is a lawless and unconstitutional act of judicial usurpation, as there is no language anywhere in the Constitution that even remotely suggests that abortion is a constitutional right.” The ordinance goes on to say, “Constitutional scholars have excoriated Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113 (1973), for its lack of reasoning and its decision to concoct a constitutional right to abortion that has no textual foundation in the Constitution or any source of law.”
The Mason Ordinance also declares abortion-inducing drugs to be contraband:
“It shall be unlawful for any person to possess or distribute abortion-inducing drugs in the Mason, Ohio, and it shall be unlawful for any person to mail or ship abortion-inducing drugs into the city of Mason, Ohio.” Abortion-inducing drugs are defined as “mifepristone, misoprostol, and any drug or medication that is used to terminate the life of an unborn child.”
