An Ohio bill that would ban abortions once a fetal heartbeat can be detected is headed to the Ohio Gov. John Kasich's desk.

The House of Representatives voted to approve the "heartbeat bill" Tuesday night after it passed in the Senate earlier in the day.

This bill would be one of the nation's most stringent abortion restrictions. The legislation prohibits most abortions as early as six weeks into pregnancy after the first detectable heartbeat.

Gov. John Kasich, a pro-lifer, has concerns about whether the law would be constitutional and has not said whether he plans to sign the measure.
