The Ohio state Senate recently passed the pro-life bill 18 to 13 that would make it illegal to perform abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detected.
The state Senate approved House Bill 258 only after the addition of a few amendments that would allow for abortions be performed later in pregnancy. The original bill proposed that abortion be illegal after fetal heartbeat is detected with a transvaginal ultrasound, which is about 6 weeks. “However, senators changed the bill to clarify that transvaginal ultrasounds weren’t required and that other forms of heartbeat detection technology could be used. In abdominal ultrasounds, the other common imaging technology, heartbeats are detected at around 12 weeks”, according to Cleveland.com.
The state House now has to approve the final version and it is expected to pass. While Governor John Kasich says he will veto the heartbeat bill, the potential for a veto override by the state legislature is unsure. Fortunately, if Kasich vetos the bill, “Gov.-elect Mike DeWine, who takes office in January, said he would sign it”, stated LifeNews.
Of course, pro-death advocates are labeling the bill as “dangerous” (interesting word choice) for women’s reproductive rights. Ohio NARAL Deputy Director, Jamie Miracle says, “it lacks safeguards to make sure pregnant women have options to protect their health due to the standard put forth in the bill” as reported by Statehouse News. Where the safeguard is for the baby in utero, Miracle couldn’t care less.
This proposed bill comes after 9 other states proposed the same bill with Iowa having the strictest abortion laws in the nation. Making it illegal to have an abortion after 6 weeks, when a heartbeat can be detected, many states have attempted to follow Iowa’s lead on the sanctity of life.
President Donald Trump Pledges to “Fully Defund” Planned Parenthood If Reelected
Trump has governed as the most pro-life President in history.
President Trump is pledging to fully defund abortion giant Planned Parenthood during his tentative second term in office, making a pledge in a letter to the Pro-Life Voices for Trump coalition. In the letter, the President also touts the pro-life accomplishments of his administration.
The President breaks down how he’s “proudly governed as the most pro-life president in our nation’s history.”
The President touts his administration’s appointment of hundreds of pro-life judges, partial defunding of the abortion industry including Planned Parenthood, the barring of federal medical research facilities from using materials obtained from the bodies of aborted children, and the defense of personal conscience rights of physicians, medical personnel, and other professionals. Congressional Democrats have largely blocked a full defunding of Planned Parenthood, which continues to perform more abortions than any other organization in the country.
The President also touts his support for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would ban most late-term abortions.
Joe Biden, who is largely running for President on the basis of his supposedly impeccable and virtuous character, has supported total and unlimited legalization of abortion throughout his entire political career. The nominal Catholic went so far as to quote Pope St. John Paul II in a recent campaign ad, a nod to Catholic voters, all while silently disregarding his commitment to abortion on demand.
