President-elect Donald Trump has promised to be a pro-life president and vowed to appoint justices to the Supreme Court who will uphold the sanctity of life.
Somewhere down the road, a challenge may come from Ohio, where a controversial “heartbeat bill” has passed the state Senate and House and awaited Gov. John Kasich’s signature, WCMH reported.
The bill would ban abortions once a fetal heartbeat could be detected, unless the mother’s health was at risk. If Kasich approves this bill, it would become one of the toughest anti-abortion laws in America.
Kasich has expressed some concern over this bill, as it is not known if it could stand up to a constitutional challenge before the Supreme Court. That’s where Trump’s Supreme Court nominees could come in and help the law survive.
CNN noted that Arkansas and North Dakota tried to pass heartbeat bills, but they were shot down after being found unconstitutional.
If Kasich doesn’t veto this bill in 10 days, it will become a law.
This bill has actually been defeated twice in Ohio, but it gained new momentum after Trump’s stunning win, Fox News noted. If the bill does pass, it is in for a tough legal fight regardless of who sits on the Supreme Court.
Obviously, liberals are outraged over this bill, claiming it will essentially ban abortions and hurt women. Pro-life conservatives are cheering the bill as protecting the sanctity of life — assuming Kasich doesn’t veto it.
