The Ohio House has approved a controversial bill that bans abortion at the point which a fetal heartbeat can be detected.
Republican Christina Hagan, sponsor of what is called the “heartbeat bill” testified for it while wearing her twin infants in a sling across her chest, “Motherhood isn’t easy but it’s necessary. It’s the reason every one of us are here today. It’s the reason every one of us have a living, beating heart."
The bill bans abortion as early as six weeks into a pregnancy, with no exceptions for rape, incest or health of the woman.
