AWESOME: Ohio passes HEARTBEAT BILL, restricting abortion once heartbeat is detected

Ohio has just sent a bill to Governor Kasich’s desk that would restrict abortion once the heartbeat of a child is detected:

Here’s more:

USA TODAY – Ohio would have the country’s most restrictive abortion laws under a bill sent to Gov. John Kasich on Tuesday, as leading Republicans were emboldened by the anticipation of Donald Trump’s upcoming federal and Supreme court appointments.

If signed by Kasich, the so-called “heartbeat bill” would ban abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected, which can be as early as six weeks’ gestation. The proposal would not exempt pregnancies resulting from rape or incest, but does include an exception for an abortion to save the life of the pregnant woman.

The change would put the state in violation of current constitutional standards for abortion rights.

For years, Kasich, leading Republican senators and Ohio Right to Life have cited its unconstitutionality as their reason for opposing the heartbeat measure. Federal courts have struck down similar laws in North Dakota and Arkansas.

Senate President Keith Faber, a Republican from Celina, Ohio, even suggested last year that supporters of the heartbeat bill ultimately were undermining efforts “to save babies.”

On Tuesday, Senate Republicans changed course. Faber cited Trump’s election to the presidency as justification for his change of heart, saying the effort could have a shot in the courts with Trump’s appointees. The U.S. Supreme Court has held that states cannot prohibit abortions unless a fetus is viable outside the womb, generally accepted as 24 weeks’ gestation.

So for people like Cuomo, they hate religion as a basis for restricting abortion. Apparently science is the only answer for them.

But guess what? This is science! If there’s a detectable heartbeat, then that means it is definitely a child. 1+1=2.

And if you remember, scientists have found that a baby’s heartbeat can now be detected as early as 16 days!

I really hope Kasich signs this bill and does it with a huge ceremony. It’s a great bill, and although will be challenged in the courts, we have to keep fighting to end this scourge of abortion as quickly as possible.
