Ohio House of Representatives Passes the Heartbeat Bill
The Ohio House of Representatives has passed the Heartbeat Bill (SB 23) with a 56-39 vote. This bill would prohibit abortion once a heartbeat is detected in an unborn child.
Because the bill was amended in committee, it must go back to the Senate for a final vote before heading to Governor Mike DeWine’s desk.
“Elections matter,” said Aaron Baer, president of Citizens for Community Values. “Ohio voters have continued to send pro-life champions to the General Assembly, and today, we witnessed this hard work pay off.”
CCV will send out the final votes in the House and Senate after the Senate vote.
As Ohio’s Family Policy Council, Citizens for Community Values seeks the good of our neighbors throughout Ohio by advocating for public policy that reflects the truth of the Gospel. We endeavor to create an Ohio where God’s blessings of life, family, and religious freedom are treasured, respected, and protected.
