Ohio's 'heartbeat' abortion bill awaits Gov. Kasich's signature
Ohio state lawmakers have passed a controversial "Heartbeat Bill" that would ban abortions from the moment the heartbeat of a fetus can be detected -- which usually occurs about six weeks into a pregnancy.

Now Republican Gov. John Kasich, who this year lost his White House bid, must decide whether to approve a law that would ban abortions even in cases of rape or incest – likely dragging the state into a litany of court challenges – or veto the bill.

The bill would be one of the toughest restrictions on abortions in the country.

…The ACLU of Ohio tweeted, “Just a reminder, if the unconstitutional #HeartBeatBill passes and becomes law, we will challenge it in court.”

  At least two other fetal heartbeat abortion laws – in Arkansas and North Dakota – we found to be unconstitutional in federal court.

Ohio state Sen. Joe Schiavoni, a Democrat from Boardman, said the bill would lead to “expensive lawsuits” that would divert resources away from more pressing issues like the opioid crisis.

“To the taxpayers of Ohio, I am sorry that your money will have to be used to defend this bill in the court system.”

Not Wanting Kids Is Entirely Normal

“American culture can’t accept the reality of a woman who does not want to be a mother. It goes against everything we’ve been taught to think about women and how desperately they want babies. If we’re to believe the media and pop culture, women – even teen girls – are forever desperate for a baby. It’s our greatest desire.”
