Ohio Governor Mike DeWine Signed Bill Banning Abortions When Unborn Baby’s Heartbeat Begins
— making it the 6th state to ban abortions after an unborn baby’s heartbeat begins.
“Government’s role should be to protect life from the beginning to the end,” DeWine said before signing the bill.
The heartbeat bill passed the state legislature Wednesday. It would prohibit abortions after an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable, about six weeks of pregnancy. Because many women do not even know they are pregnant at this early stage, the legislation could protect almost all unborn babies in Ohio if it goes into effect.
