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.
