‘Heartbeat’ abortion ban on its way to Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine

The Ohio General Assembly sent a bill to Gov. Mike DeWine on Wednesday afternoon that would ban abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected.

The House passed the bill 56-40, mostly along party lines, as people on both sides of the abortion debate loudly protested outside the chamber.

Shortly after, the Ohio Senate voted 18-13, also largely on party lines, to agree to changes made in the House to Senate Bill 23.

DeWine has said he would sign a heartbeat bill.

The bill would ban abortion as soon as six weeks into a pregnancy.
