Score One For The Unborn

Ohio House Passes Ban on Abortions, Late-Term Abortions

LifeNews.com: The Ohio state House today passed three pro-life bills including a measure that would ban most all abortions, one that bans late-term abortions and a third that stops taxpayer funding of abortions in Ohio under Obamacare.

The chamber approved the “Heartbeat Bill” that would ban virtually all abortions in the state starting at the 22-day mark when an unborn child’s heart begins beating. The legislation has the support of some pro-life advocates but Ohio Right to Life and other pro-life groups oppose the bill because of various concerns about its ability to survive a court challenge.

The House, led by Republicans, voted 54-43 for the abortion ban, which now faces less certain prospects in the state Senate. “This is a historic vote,” said Porter, the president of Ohio-based Faith2Action,one of the main pro-life groups pushing the legislation. “When passed, the heartbeat bill will be the most protective legislation in the nation.

The Late-Term Abortion Ban would require physicians to test the viability of an unborn child if the mother were seeking an abortion at 20 weeks or later into her pregnancy.  If the child is found to be able to live outside the mother’s womb, the abortion cannot be performed, except in circumstances where the pregnancy is a threat to the mother’s health.

Cathy Levy, executive director of the Ohio Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, condemned the passage of the three pro-life bills, according to the Lancaster Gazette. “These bills will return us to the days of back-alley abortions and will not keep abortions from happening,” she claimed. “Is the coat hanger what God would want for a beloved daughter?”

I doubt God would want a coat hanger for a “beloved” daughter.  I also doubt God would want a baby sucked from a mother’s womb, at any stage.  Good for these Ohio leaders!

This battle, like all battles, is fought state by state, one by one, heart by heart, soul by soul — just as we had lost the battle to the Left, one by one, soul by soul.
Thank you, Republican state legislators of Ohio. Thank you, voters of Ohio for electing a Republican majority last November.
Now let’s keep the momentum by winning back the US Senate and the White House in 2012 — for all the yet-to-be-born!

Perhaps they should also raise the age of consent, to about 20, so that children would stop having children. They could also tighten up the statutory rape laws. And, starting in pre-school, every child should have mandatory classes in order to increase their self esteem and self respect. I am not advocating sex ed for toddlers, but respect education for all, which would improve all sorts of behavior. Those that treasure the bodies God gave them do not hop in the sack with anyone that asks. Even if they don’t believe in God. Those with self respect don’t go around… Read more »

God has blessed Ohio. Hopefully more will follow. Only prayer can defeat abortion, which is just a nice way of saying murder. Around the world on a lot of blogs Obama is called the Abortion President. You’d be surprised the amount of countries where he is not liked usually by conservatives. He is the darling of the loony left. God bless all.

Lone, I agree. Now, could we please start teaching young men and women that sex, more sex, and sex all the time is a path to destruction, because they don’t honor their own selves, and, they demean the other when they engage in casual sex, in addition to making abortion difficult? (After all, there are reasons to terminate pregnancy that are way beyond mere convenience.) I blame Hollywood and the Hugh Hefner’s of the world, for the beginnings of sex as casual and ‘oh so good,’ for the gradual removal of self-respect from people. That lack of self respect turns… Read more »
