House Bill 258, the Human Heartbeat Protection Act, prohibits a doctor from committing an abortion if a heartbeat can be detected. Ohio’s Heartbeat law will protect a significant number of unborn babies by prohibiting abortion of those with a detectable heartbeat, as early as six weeks gestation. It has already passed the Ohio House with a veto-proof majority.
The impact of this legislation on the unborn far outweighs any other piece of legislation that has been brought forth in the last several years. The Heartbeat Bill is not perfect, because children will still be killed by abortion. However, if passed, it will undoubtedly save hundreds of lives.
Now is the time for our pro-life majority in the Senate to keep their promises and bring the Heartbeat Bill to an immediate floor vote. Please pray that God grants them the fortitude to stand strong against the pressure of pro-abortion views and political influences.
Right to Life of Greater Cincinnati has supported Ohio’s human heartbeat protection strategy since efforts began in 2011. In the years since, these efforts have educated many on the true nature of abortion’s toll on women, men, and their unborn children. In 2016, the Heartbeat Bill passed the Ohio House and Senate, but was ultimately vetoed by Governor Kasich.
