News and Current Events
Heartbeat Bill Passes in Ohio
BISHOP THOMAS STATEMENT
Yesterday, Governor Mike DeWine signed into law the “Heartbeat Bill” (SB 23) ensuring children in the womb cannot be aborted in the State of Ohio once a fetal heartbeat is detected. This is a major step forward in protecting the dignity and value of every human being in our society, most especially, those who cannot defend themselves against violence, the unborn.
I offer my sincere gratitude to Governor DeWine, the Ohio Legislature, and the countless pro-life organizations and individuals who brought this legislation to completion. READ FULL PRESS RELEASE.
