Huge Pro Life Victory In Ohio: Keeps Hearts Beating; Operation Rescue
Columbus, OH – For five years and against stiff opposition – sometimes from within the pro-life camp – Janet Folger Porter has worked with the Ohio Legislature to pass a unique bill that would prevent abortion when the heartbeat of a pre-born baby can be detected, generally at six weeks gestation. That bill would essentially end all but a very few early abortions in Ohio.
Now the groundbreaking law goes to the desk of Republican Gov. John Kasich for his signature.
“We urge Gov. Kasich to sign the Heartbeat Bill as soon as possible,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “It is what the Ohio Legislature wants and it is want the people want, must most importantly, it will save countless lives from a barbarically brutal death by abortion. Not signing this live-saving legislation is simply unthinkable.”
