Ohio Christian Alliance

An Historic Pro-Life Day in Ohio

Today, Ohio made history as the Ohio Legislature passed three significant pieces of pro-life legislation. Thanks to your phone calls and emails to your legislators, H.B. 78, Ohio's ban on late term abortion, sponsored by State Representatives Kristina Roegner and Joe Uecker, passed the Ohio House by a margin of 64-32.  H.B. 79 , a provision to opt Ohio out of taxpayer abortion coverge under the new federal health care law, sponsored by Representatives Danny Bubp and Joe Ueker, passed by a vote of 62-35. 

Ohio's Heartbeat Bill, H.B. 125, sponsored by State Rep. Lynn Wachtmann, passed the Ohio House by a margin of 54-43.  This legislation goes farther than any previous pro-life legislation to date.  It will restrict abortion when a baby's heartbeat can be detected.  Numerous pro-life organizations throughout the state, along with pro-life legislators, worked on the passage of this legislation. 

OCA President Chris Long made the following statement, "These successes are due to the efforts of pro-life Ohioans who for years have prayed, voted, and lobbied for the unborn.  Their voices were heard on behalf of the unborn innocent, and that message is resonating with members of the Ohio Legislature and is evidenced by this strong pro-life legislation."
