Tougher wording in"heartbeat" bill heads to Ohio House panel

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A committee vote is scheduled in the Republican-led Ohio House on legislation to ban abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detected after the bill was altered to make heartbeat detection as easy as technologically possible.

Abortion rights groups have decried the latest version of the so-called "heartbeat bill" as effectively outlawing a procedure accessible to women under the U.S. Constitution.

The measure's backers seek to challenge the legal standard of viability established in the landmark 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision.

The House Health Committee planned a vote Tuesday on its version of the bill, which makes clear that transvaginal ultrasound isn't exempted from use in detecting a heartbeat. That's changed from the version the Ohio Senate approved last month.

Republican Gov. Mike DeWine has said he'd sign a heartbeat bill.


********** So these misogynistic f***ers changed this bill so it will allow heartbeat detection through sticking a wand up a woman's vagina!!! This makes my blood boil!!! They are such evil monsters!!! My heart breaks for Ohio's women!!
