Ohio Gov. Kasich OKs 20-week abortion ban, nixes heartbeat bill

COLUMBUS, Ohio— Ohio Gov. John Kasich has signed a 20-week abortion ban while vetoing stricter provisions in a separate measure that would have barred the procedure at the first detectable fetal heartbeat.

The Republican governor acted on both proposals Tuesday, the same day they landed on this desk.

The heartbeat bill prohibited most abortions as early as six weeks into pregnancy. Its provisions cleared the Republican-led Legislature last week after being tucked into separate legislation.

Similar measures elsewhere have faced legal challenges, and detractors in Ohio feared such legislation would lead to a costly fight in the courts. Opponents predicted it would be found unconstitutional if it became law.

    A heartbeat bill makes a lot of sense to me. Medical technology has improved significantly since Roe v Wade was decided by the Supreme Court. Once it can be demonstrated that the fetus has a beating heart and brain activity they should be protected from being murdered by the baby slaughter industry.

    No matter what anyone says, you can’t argue with a heartbeat…..PERIOD!!
    People who make the claim that it’s just a fetus are full of crap. Life begins at conception……PERIOD! The only thing abortion has EVER been used for is another form of birth control to simply give those who get pregnant another way out.
