The Ohio Governor Just Signed a Bill Banning Abortion Before Many Women Know They Are Pregnant – Mother Jones

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine signed a bill Thursday making it illegal for women to receive an abortion once a heartbeat has been detected in the fetus—as early as six weeks gestation. The legislation effectively bans abortion before many women even know they are pregnant.

The bill does not include any exceptions for abortions in the instances of rape or incest. When it passed the state House earlier in the week, Republican lawmakers also added a last-minute addition that imposes a $20,000 fine on physicians who violate the law.

Next step, the death penalty for birth control use, or abortions, including back alley abortions when legal ones are made illegal.
