Despite the possibility of the law being rejected nationally in court, the Ohio Right to Live is supporting another bill that involves abortion.
COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio senators voted Tuesday for a bill that could effectively outlaw abortions.
The Heartbeat Bill bans the procedure once a heartbeat can be detected – usually about six weeks into pregnancy.
The Senate passed the bill 21-10 largely along party lines. The Ohio House earlier approved the bill.
If signed by Gov. John Kasich, the legislation would make Ohio’s abortion laws among the most restrictive in the nation.
However, some abortions foes, including Kasich and Ohio Right to Life, have said the bill would not survive a constitutional challenge.
