Ohio abortion-ban backers continue lobbying push

Published: Tue, January 10, 2012 @ 3:15 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Supporters of an Ohio bill that would impose the nation’s strictest abortion limit are delivering stuffed animals containing the sounds of beating hearts to state senators in the latest push to get the bill through that chamber.

The measure cleared the Ohio House in June. Backers had believed it was headed toward passage in the Senate before the holiday break, but Senate President Tom Niehaus suspended hearings on the measure in December.

The proposal referred to as the “heartbeat bill” would outlaw abortions at the first detectable fetal heartbeat — sometimes as early as six weeks into pregnancy.

Anti-abortion activists planned to have children deliver the stuffed animals today to all 33 state senators. The fuzzy bears produce the heartbeat sound when squeezed.

I wish if the Republicans wanted less government that they would start by not trying to legislate morality for everyone but themselves. They ought to BUTT OUT of people's personal business!

You too are idiots...What if you were sucked out of the womb and killed?

People like you are is what is wrong with Youngstown. You are NO BETTER than the drug dealers controlling the city.

May God find mercy on your souls. Hopefully you will not be "taken out" by a needle or coat hanger...
