Emboldened by Trump win, Ohio passes "heartbeat" law banning abortion at 6 WEEKS. [View all]

All that is required now is Kasich's freakin' signature.


House joins Senate in approving heartbeat abortion bill By Catherine Candisky, Randy Ludlow & Jim Siegel The Columbus Dispatch Tuesday December 6, 2016 10:29 PM

The election of Donald Trump emboldened majority Republicans in the Ohio General Assembly to pass the strictest abortion law in the nation Tuesday.

In a surprise move in the final days of the lame-duck session, the Senate and House adopted the Heartbeat Bill long sought by some abortion opponents to outlaw abortions once a fetal heartbeat can be detected, generally about six weeks into pregnancy.

Previous attempts to pass the bill failed over concerns that it would be ruled unconstitutional in the federal courts, as have similar laws in two other states.

"A new president, new Supreme Court appointees change the dynamic, and there was consensus in our caucus to move forward," said Senate President Keith Faber, R-Celina, when asked why the measure suddenly surfaced to the shock of objecting Democrats.

On a personal note: I'd like to take this chance to ONCE AGAIN THANK THE ASSHOLES OF JPR and every other fumducker that helped land Hair Twitler in office and empowered jack-wits like these. Nicely done. You got what you wanted, and this is just the beginning. Good for you.
