The Ohio Senate has passed the most restrictive abortion bill in the country. It bans abortion once a fetal heartbeat can be detected.
As Motto reported:
“The bill now returns to the House for approval, the Columbus Dispatch reports. Similar bans have been passed in Arkansas and North Dakota, but both laws were found to be unconstitutional. Ohio Gov. John Kasich has not taken a stance on the current bill, but has opposed the measure in the past due to questions of constitutionality.”
A fetal heartbeat can be detected as early as six weeks after conception. Most women don’t find out that early in the pregnancy. They are just blocking abortion without really blocking it.
At least there was a sane Democrat in the house, Ohio state Sen. Charleta Tavares from Columbus, said:
“I believe everyone has a right to their own body. We allowed a good bill that protects the health and safety of our children to be bastardized into a government takeover of women’s wombs.”
This law is unconstitutional. Hopefully, Governor John Kasich will see reason and not sign this horrific bills.
