    Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine Will Sign 'Heartbeat Bill' on Abortion

    Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine Will Sign 'Heartbeat Bill' on Abortion

    January 23, 2019

    Jason Devaney


    Ohio's new Gov. Mike DeWine, a Republican, is pledging to sign into law a bill that would make abortions illegal once a fetal heartbeat is detected, which can be as early as six weeks into a pregnancy.

    DeWine told radio host Hugh Hewitt he would sign the "heartbeat bill," legislation his predecessor John Kasich, also a Republican, vetoed last month before leaving office.

    "Yes, absolutely," DeWine said when asked if he will sign the measure.

    "We will do this. I just saw the headline, a court struck down another heartbeat bill for another state. But ultimately, Hugh, you and I both know that this thing once it's passed in Ohio . . . once it becomes law, Planned Parenthood is going to be in the next day, or that day, filing a lawsuit. But ultimately, this will work its way up to the United States Supreme Court. And they'll make that decision."

    Kasich signed into law a 20-week ban on abortions at the end of 2016. At the same time, he vetoed a "heartbeat bill." Last month, he vetoed another version of the legislation.

    The New York legislature approved a bill Tuesday that will allow abortions to be performed up until a baby's due date.

    Judge rules Iowa's 'fetal heartbeat’ abortion law is unconstitutional

    A state judge has ruled that Iowa's “fetal heartbeat” abortion law is unconstitutional.
    Polk County District Judge Michael Huppert ruled against the restrictive measure on Tuesday in a nine-page ruling, according to The Des Moines Register.

    Huppert cited a previous ruling from the Iowa Supreme Court where the justices stated that "a woman's right to decide whether to terminate a pregnancy is a fundamental right under the Iowa Constitution."

    The law would have forced a ban on nearly all abortions as soon as a heartbeat was detected, making it the most restrictive piece of legislation regarding abortion in the U.S. Heartbeats can reportedly be detected within six weeks of a pregnancy.

    Critics of the bill said many women don't even know they are pregnant at the six-week mark in their pregnancy.

    The law, known as the "fetal heartbeat" bill, was set to take effect in July 2018. But a judge temporarily blocked it from becoming law until a lawsuit from Planned Parenthood of the Heartland and the American Civil Liberties Union was resolved.

    Huppert wrote in his decision that defenders of the law didn't provide a compelling state interest in banning abortions after a heartbeat is detected, according to The Register.

    The Associated Press reported that supporters of the bill will likely request that the state Supreme Court hear an appeal.
