By one vote, Ohio Legislature fails to override Kasich veto of heartbeat bill

By one vote, Ohio Legislature fails to override Kasich veto of heartbeat bill

In a heartbreaking loss, the Ohio Senate failed to reach the required votes to override Ohio Governor John Kasich’s veto of the “heartbeat bill.” House Bill 258 passed the House in a 60-28 vote, but failed 19-13 by a single vote in the Senate, as it needed 20 votes to pass. The bill banning abortion once a baby’s heartbeat is detected will not go into law.

This comes just a week after Ohio governor John Kasich vetoed the heartbeat bill for the second time in two years. At the same time Kasich vetoed the heartbeat bill, he signed into law a bill banning D&E (dilation and evacuation) abortions. As Live Action News previously reported, “The legislation will also penalize doctors who break the new law and continue to commit these barbaric abortions.”
