Ohio Republicans Aim to Ban Abortion

Two Republican lawmakers have introduced legislation in the Ohio House of Representatives that would ban abortion in all cases.

Cleveland.com reported the bill makes an “unborn human” a person under Ohio’s criminal code, therefore making abortions subject to murder, manslaughter, homicide, and wrongful death lawsuits.

State Rep. Ron Hood, a sponsor of the bill, said he believes life begins at conception, and “the goal of this bill is to first of all continue to get the word out that life does begin at conception and move the debate in that direction, and to protect unborn Ohioans from being aborted.”

Another sponsor of the bill, Representative Nino Vitale, characterized the legislation as a “save them both” bill with no exceptions for abortion in the case of risk to a mother’s life.
