Ohio Senate Kills "Heartbeat" Abortion Bill

Would have made abortions after first detected heartbeat illegal


COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP)—An Ohio bill that would have imposed the most stringent restriction on abortions in the nation met its end Tuesday.

Senators don't plan to vote on the so-called "heartbeat bill" before the end of the legislative session next month, Republican Senate President Tom Niehaus said, citing concerns the resulting law might have been found to be unconstitutional.
