New Ohio Heartbeat Bill Filed

Ohio state Sen. Kris Jordan (R-Ostrander) introduced a bill Thursday that would ban abortion after the detection of a fetal heartbeat, which can be as early as six weeks into a pregnancy and before many women know they are pregnant.

Sponsored by state Reps. Christina Hagan (R-Alliance) and Lynn Wachtmann (R-Napoleon), HB 248 would make most abortions illegal if performed once a fetal or embryonic heartbeat can be detected.
