    Default Ohio Governor Sign Bill Banning Abortion After 1st Heartbeat

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/oh...cid=spartandhp
    COLUMBUS, Ohio — A bill imposing one of the most stringent abortion restrictions in the nation was signed into law in Ohio on Thursday, banning abortions after a detectable heartbeat in a long-sought victory for abortion opponents that drew an immediate constitutional challenge.

    In signing the heartbeat bill, Republican Gov. Mike DeWine broke with his predecessor, Republican John Kasich, who had vetoed the measure twice on grounds that it was unconstitutional.

    But DeWine defended Ohio Republicans' decision to push the boundaries of the law, because "it is the right thing to do."

    "Taking this action really is a kind of a time-honored tradition, the constitutional tradition of making a good faith argument for modification or reversal of existing legal precedents," he said. "So that is what this is."
    He said it's the government's job to protect the vulnerable. The bill outlaws abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected, which doctors say can be as early as five weeks into pregnancy, before many women know they are pregnant.

    Some hate religion and favor science as their moral high ground.
    Science says that life exits when a heartbeat exists................that makes it murder to stop a beating heart.

    Not sure if the above post belongs in the Religion thread, or just a stand alone thread.
    Either way, I'll post this article and see what responses it gets.

    This Republican Texas lawmaker halted a bill to outlaw abortion. He now faces security concerns, sheriff says
    The Collin County sheriff said his office is looking into “security concerns” related to state Rep. Jeff Leach, days after the Plano Republican announced he would not allow a controversial abortion bill to leave his committee for a vote of the full House.
    The bill from state Rep. Tony Tinderholt, R-Arlington, criminalizes abortion and opens up the possibility of prosecutors charging a woman who has an abortion with criminal homicide, which can be punishable by the death penalty under current Texas law.
    Tinderholt released a statement Wednesday evening defending the bill, explaining that exempting mothers from homicide charges would “treat unborn children differently than other people who are murdered.”
    What about charges for the man who impregnates the women ?
    The lunatics of the republican party is beyond belief. Men make the laws and women are an afterthought when it comes to justice.
