PRO-LIFE LEADERS CALL FOR A COMMITMENT TO SAVE THE HEARTBEAT BILL
COLUMBUS – The sponsor of the Heartbeat Bill and pro-life leaders will be holding a press conference calling on legislative leadership to commit to enacting the Heartbeat Bill before the end of 2018, even if it means overriding a veto from Governor Kasich after Christmas and before New Year’s Day.
It has been nearly a month since the Ohio House of Representatives passed the Heartbeat Bill. With time running out, the pro-life community is calling on leadership in the House and Senate to hold to their pro-life promises, and save thousands of lives annually. Every day of delay, more children perish from abortion.
