Update: The Heartbeat Bill has officially been signed into law, meaning abortion after the detection of a fetal heartbeat is now illegal in Ohio.

The law, that makes no exceptions for pregnancies resulting from rape or incest, was signed by Republican Gov. Mike DeWine Thursday evening. Ohio’s previous governor John Kasich, had vetoed the bill twice.

Doctors say a fetal heartbeat can be detected as early as five weeks into pregnancy, before many women even know they’re pregnant.

CBS News calls this “one of the nation’s strictest anti-abortion bills.”

Supporters of the Heartbeat Bill see this as a step in the right direction to overturning Roe v. Wade. Opponents, like ACLU and Pre-Term Cleveland, are already building a case to challenge the law.

04/11/2019: The controversy abortion legislation known as the “Heartbeat Bill” has been passed by the Ohio House and Ohio Senate and will now move on to Governor Mike DeWine’s desk.

If signed into the law, the heartbeat bill would outlaw abortions after the first fetal heartbeat has been detected, which is possible in as few as five weeks, but could take as many as 12.

Back in January, DeWine told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt that he will “absolutely” sign the bill and predicts having to face lawsuits for doing it.

“…once it’s passed in Ohio, once we sign it, once it becomes law, Planned Parenthood is going to be in the next day, or that day, filing a lawsuit,” DeWine said, per The Hill. 

DeWine added that he sees the bill making its way to the Supreme Court.

This bill has passed through the state house for the third time in five years, reports NBC4i.
