One pro-life bill survives, another does not, the Governor's pen.

One pro-life bill survives, another does not, the Governor's pen. Today, two pro-life measures were placed on Governor Kasich's desk - the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (S.B. 172) and the Heartbeat Bill. The Ohio Christian Alliance supported both bills. While we are pleased that Ohio has joined other states in a 20-week abortion ban bill, we are greatly disappointed that the Heartbeat Bill was vetoed. OCA has supported the Heartbeat Bill since it was first introduced. The late Dr. Jack Willke, founder of Right to Life, stated that this legislation was needed at this time to advance the cause of life. There is discussion of a possible legislative override of the veto. We will keep you updated. -OCA President Chris Long
