Legislation Aimed to End Abortion in Ohio
COLUMBUS, Ohio--Today, at a press conference held at the Ohio Statehouse, Ohio Right to Life announced its full legislative agenda for 2015. Headlining the list of six pro-life initiatives is a "trigger clause," legislation that would create a new regulatory framework following the overturning of Roe v. Wade.
The following statement is a response to Congressman Tim Ryan's switch from "pro-life" to "pro-choice" and can be attributed to Mike Gonidakis, President of Ohio Right to Life.
60 Percent of Americans Support 20-Week Ban
COLUMBUS, Ohio--Today, Ohio Right to Life announced landmark legislation that will ban abortions in Ohio at 20 weeks gestation, the point during pregnancy at which pre-born children can feel pain. This legislation, which is similar to National Right to Life's Pain-Capable legislation, will be introduced in the Ohio General Assembly in the coming weeks. Significantly, the legislation challenges the viability limit on abortion restrictions, commonly triggered at 24 weeks, that the U.S. Supreme Court imposed in the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision.
