from the article:Ohio lawmakers passed a new abortion bill, called "the heartbeat bill" that would ban abortions as soon as the unborn baby's heartbeat can be detected. The ban will make an exception if the mother's life is in danger, but not for rape or incest. Republican lawmakers in the Ohio House voted to approve the bill Tuesday evening after it passed in the state Senate. The new bill is reported to be the most strict in the nation regarding abortions. Now it is up to Gov. John Kasich to approve the bill. He has not said whether he will sign it or not.

Ohio governor vetoes 'heartbeat' abortion bill(CNN)Ohio Gov. John Kasich vetoed a measure that would have outlawed abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected while approving a law that outlaws abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.The vetoed proposal, commonly referred to as the "heartbeat bill," would have been the nation's strictest time-based legislation, banning abortions around six weeks.
QUOTE:"Now it is up to Gov. John Kasich to approve the bill. He has not said whether he will sign it or not."He refused to sign it. However he did did tighten Ohio's abortion laws by signing a bill that would prevent abortions after 20 weeks' gestation, when opponents of the procedure say fetuses can feel pain.Sandra
May God have mercy on his soul. Imagine, if you will, when he comes before the Lord, that he tells Jesus it was too expensive to sign the heartbeat bill because it would have just been been thrown out by the supreme court at a later date. I think this may be part and parcel of why the Establishment Republicans were so soundly thrashed by a man many consider to be an oaf.............bro Frank
