Heartbeat Bill Returns to Ohio Senate
Fire up the press releases. Grab the bullhorns. Get ready for the demonstrations.
The Heartbeat Bill is back in both branches of the legislature Ohio.
State Sen. Kris Jordan, R-Ostrander, has reintroduced the controversial measure that would ban abortions once a fetal heartbeat can be detected.
Advocates of the measure have been protesting for the past week over what they view as the short shfit given them by state lawmakers. A Heartbeat Bill has been pending in the House for months.
Janet Porter, head of Faith2Action, called conservative House Speaker William G. Batchelder “anti-life” in a call to action last week after the GOP caucus declined to endorse some “pro-life” lawmakers. “We must scream from the rooftops about this injustice and weigh in to help our guys!”
