Heartbeat Bill…..your chance to take action

Passing along a message from a Pro Life group…..we will be addressing this issue in Lake County in 2019.  This issue is of paramount importance to us for many reasons.   We hold to the absolute truth that if you destroy the family, babies and morality the society, as we know it, will collapse.

ACTION ALERT: Email your State Senator and State Representative to Override Kasich’s Veto of the Heartbeat Bill
Governor Kasich has vetoed the Heartbeat Bill (HB 258) which would have saved thousands of lives annually in Ohio by prohibiting abortion once a heartbeat is detected. You can read CCV’s statement on the veto here.
However, the Heartbeat Bill still has a heartbeat! The General Assembly can override the governor’s veto, but must do so before December 31.
The Ohio House of Representatives and Ohio Senate are scheduled to convene tomorrow.
We need your help to call on members of the Ohio General Assembly to commit to coming to the Statehouse and voting in favor of the Heartbeat Bill.
Then, if you’d like to join CCV and pro-lifers from across the state at the Statehouse tomorrow, the House and Senate will be convening at 10 a.m.! Ohio can make history tomorrow if we stand up for unborn children!
After you send your message to your representative, share this Action Alert with your friends and family on facebook and twitter!

Here is an article from the Akron Beacon Journal on Governor Kasich’s position on the “Heartbeat Bill” and the “Stand Your Ground” legislation.

“Ohio Gov. John Kasich will veto both a Heartbeat Bill and Stand Your Ground legislation if the controversial bills reach his desk during the legislature’s current lame-duck session.

That could set up a dramatic political contest of “beat the clock” in the waning days of 2018.

During a meeting with reporters outside the door to his Statehouse office, Kasich said he has not changed his opposition to either proposal. Two years ago he vetoed the Heartbeat Bill, which would ban abortions in Ohio once a fetal heartbeat can be detected. And he has threatened a veto for months on the gun rights measure, which would change Ohioans’ obligation to retreat in threatening situations.

The House has passed both items by margins wide enough votes to override a Kasich veto. The Senate has yet to act on either bill, but is expected to soon.

Once a bill passes both chambers, it usually takes several days to officially land on the governor’s desk. He then has 10 days to sign it, veto it or become law without his signature.

That means if the Senate dawdles, the process may bleed into the Christmas holiday season — a time when legislative leaders likely will have trouble mustering many members back to Columbus. And the Heartbeat Bill passed with 60 votes in the House — the bare minimum to override Kasich’s veto. The Stand Your Ground measure can only lose five supporters to remain veto-proof.

Gov.-elect Mike DeWine has indicated backing for both proposals.”

We have been informed that our State Senator John Eklund did not support the “Heartbeat” bill, and we have sent him an email asking for his reasoning why he did not support it.  We will post his response when we receive it.
