Thanks to the Geauga patriots for this article on the passage of the heartbeat bill:
(LFC Comment: Please note the our State Senator John Eklund voted AGAINST the bill that would prohibit an abortion after the detection of a heartbeat. We will be asking Senator Eklund his reasoning when we meet with him on March 29th)
Here is an excerpt of the article:
“the Ohio Senate voted in favor of passage of Substitute Senate Bill 23, the Ohio Human Heartbeat Protection Act by the vote of 19-13. Republican members Stephanie Kunze of Columbus, John Eklund of Geauga County, Nathan Manning of Lorain and Matt Dolan of Cuyahoga County joined Democrats to vote against the bill.
Sponsored by Senator Kristina Roegner of Hudson, the bill would prohibit an abortion of unborn children with a detectable heartbeat. A series of amendments to add exceptions and expand abortions under the bill were tabled.”
