CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - For the second time in 2 years, Ohio Republican Gov. John Kasich has vetoed the anti-abortion “heartbeat bill.”
Gov. Kasich was in support of abortion restrictions, but says Ohio would be on the losing end of a Supreme Court battle.
If the proposal has passed, the bill would have banned abortions as soon as a fetal heartbeat could be detected. The Right to Life Action Coalition of Ohio estimated that the legislation could have saved the lives of 17,000 unborn children in the state.
