Ohio will be the staging ground for a new breed of abortion limit that would prohibit women from ending pregnancies at the first detectable fetal heartbeat...
"As our technology gets better, we'll be able to detect that heartbeat earlier. I would like to see it moved back to brain waves," longtime abortion opponent Ray Loebker said Tuesday.Answer Question

I disagree with the bill. I think abortion opponents are going too far to impose their beliefs on the rest of society, and by restricting abortions to the extent that they want to, we will see more and more women going to extreme measures to terminate unwanted pregnancies, or see more and more babies birthed then dumped.

Do you think a beating heart isn't an indicator of "life"?
I think the beating heart that matters the most in this scenario is that of the woman who must make this decision. A beating heart in and of itself does not make a life to me. There is so much more that needs to be considered--like viability.
