Heartbeat Bill Re-Introduced at the Ohio Statehouse
COLUMBUS – State Senator Kristina Roegner has reintroduced the Heartbeat Bill in the Ohio Senate and State Representatives Ron Hood and Candice Keller have reintroduced the Heartbeat Bill in the House.
“In the wake of New York passing one of the most heinous bills in American history, Ohio has the opportunity to protect the most vulnerable in our society by enacting the Heartbeat Bill,” said Aaron Baer, president of Citizens for Community Values. “Ohioans sent a clear message in 2018 that this is a pro-life state. That’s why we have such strong pro-life advocates like Governor Mike DeWine, Senate President
Larry Obhof, and Speaker Larry Householder in positions of leadership.”
For more than 8 years, the General Assembly has been considering the Heartbeat Bill, passing the bill twice. Unfortunately, former Governor John Kasich vetoed the bill both times.
“The tragic New York bill and horrific statements by Virginia Governor Ralph Northam show the true extremism driving the pro-abortion movement. New York believes it’s okay to abort children moments before they are born. Gov. Northam believes it’s ‘up to the parents’ on what to do with their newborn child even after he or she is born. Now is the time for Ohio to respond and say, ‘We value ALL life!'”
