A proposed abortion bill in Ohio that would require a medical procedure that may not even be possible is gaining international attention.
House Bill 413 would require doctors try to save pregnancies growing outside of the uterus (ectopic pregnancies) by reimplanting the fetus in the uterus, which has never been done before. NBC4i reports OBGYNs are arguing it isn’t even medically possible.
TIME went as far as to say, “the bill seems to suggest that doctors could avoid jail time by performing a procedure that does not exist.”

Also under the bill, doctors who end pregnancies could be charged with “abortion murder,” and face the death penalty unless it is done to save a woman’s life and all possible steps are taken to save the fetus’ life.
Gov. Mike DeWine signed the heartbeat abortion bill into law in April, banning abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected. It has since been temporarily blocked by a federal judge.
