I'm writing to urge you to support the Human Heartbeat Protection Act.
This legislation would prohibit abortion when a human heartbeat can be detected. An abdominal ultrasound can detect a heartbeat between eight and twelve weeks. Any physician who performs an abortion after a fetal heartbeat has been detected would have to demonstrate they did so to save the life of the mother.
This bill is popular in the court of public opinion. A recent Marist Poll found that 75% of Americans want to limit abortions to at most three months of pregnancy (12 weeks). Gov. Mike DeWine on many occasions has promised to sign this legislation into law should it reach his desk, and I want to encourage you to be a part of the process to get it there!
I urge you to support the passage of this legislation to ensure that every human heartbeat is protected.
