Election Profile: State Issue 2

10/27/2015 – 4:00 am

This week we are talking with Dr. Perry Bush from Bluffton University on state issues that Ohio voters will see at the polls this November.

State Issue 2 is a proposal to require the Ohio Ballot Board to determine whether an initiative would create an economic monopoly or special privilege for any nonpublic entity, including individuals, corporations, and organizations. It was crafted in response to State Issue 3 which is the legalization of marijuana in Ohio. Dr. Bush says that proponents of State Issue 2 want to prevent small organizations from using the Ohio Constitution to create exclusive business rights for themselves in Ohio.

Many opponents of State Issue 2 have interests in the passage of State Issue 3 however, Dr. Bush notes that the language of State Issue 2 could also have long term consequences even if State Issue 3 fails.

If both State Issues 2 and 3 pass in November the matter will remain up to the Ohio Supreme Court to decide. More information about State Issue 2 can be found here.

The two teams combined […]

24 Doctors Without Borders Staffers Missing After Deadly Airstrike

Mustafa Bag/Anadolu Agency/Getty Images(KUNDUZ, Afghanistan) — There are still 24 staffers from Doctors Without Borders missing after the airstrike that hit the charity’s hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan.

At least 22 people died in the Saturday morning strike, including 12 staffers, the charity’s international president said Wednesday.

The organization is known internationally as Medecins Sans Frontieres, or by the acronym MSF.

Guilhem Molinie, its representative for Afghanistan, said that of the 461 staffers who were in the hospital at the time of the strike, there are still 24 missing. Of the patients, there are still nine missing.

“Our largest loss of life has occurred at the hands of American forces,” he said.

President Obama called MSF international president Dr. Joanne Liu Wednesday to apologize for the strike.

MSF has called for an independent investigation into the fatal air strike, saying an outside group must get involved, “given the inconsistencies in the U.S. and Afghan accounts of what happened,” Liu said Tuesday.

Among the claims made since the strike was that U.S. or Afghan troops may have felt threatened by Taliban fighters who were shooting at them from around the hospital, though that has not yet been confirmed.

MSF General Director Christopher Stokes said that the charity’s hospital was operating under the agreement of all parties involved in the conflict. He said that they had shared their GPS coordinates with military authorities and their staff and patients felt safe as a result.

Women to Be Mostly Absent from Vatican Family Meeting

iStock/Thinkstock(ROME) — The most important Vatican gathering to update the Catholic church’s stance on marriage, family and sex is happening — except women don’t get a say.

For the next two weeks, the Vatican family meeting will be looking at everything from divorce and contraception to the Catholic church’s approach to LGBT followers. But among the almost 300 church members at the meeting, only 30 are women — and they only get to listen, not vote.

When asked if he thought the total women’s voices from this conference on family and sexuality skewed the issues, Cardinal Wilfrid Napier from South Africa said, “No, I don’t think so. It’s a bishop’s synod, if it was a mother’s union, I’d understand if people were excluded.”

Catholic women’s groups pushing for equality in their church say they’re disappointed in Pope Francis. While he’s made comments about the need to give women more important roles in the church, he has so far failed to deliver, they say.
