Fox News – Gov. Mike DeWine, (R-Oh) signed into law Thursday one of the nation’s toughest restrictions on abortion, the so-called heartbeat bill, after the state legislature approved it on Wednesday.
John Kasich, DeWine’s predecessor, vetoed the measure twice while in office, saying the law creates a costly court battle likely to be found unconstitutional. Before DeWine signed the legislation, the ACLU said they had a constitutional challenge to the law ready.
The ACLU acts on behalf of abortion provider Pre-Term Cleveland and three other pro-abortion clinics. “Similar versions of this abortion ban stand 0-4 in federal court. Soon to be 0-5,” Ohio chapter ACLU tweeted. The ACLU national office added: “We’ll see you in court.”
