Ohio lawmakers send ‘heartbeat bill’ to governor, who says he will sign it

An agreed-upon final version of the “heartbeat bill” now heads to Governor Mike DeWine’s desk in the state of Ohio, following the news today that the Ohio Senate voted 18-13 to accept the changes made to the legislation by the House. Governor DeWine has stated that he plans to sign the bill into law. As expected, pro-abortion groups are already threatening lawsuits.

The bill would ban abortion once the preborn child’s heartbeat can be detected, which is typically around 5-6 weeks gestation.  According to News5Cleveland, “Ohio joins five other states that have passed such restrictive abortion measures” and “makes no exceptions for rape or incest.”
