Columbus, Ohio – Hundreds of enthusiastic pro-life supporters flooded the Ohio Capitol to hear a “who’s who” line-up of nationally-known pro-life leaders speak on behalf of the Heartbeat Bill that would give legal protections to all pre-born babies once a heartbeat can be detected.
“This is an important step on the road toward restoring full protections for the pre-born,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman, who was featured at the rally. “It will save thousands of lives now and lay an important stepping stone we can use to eventually extend legal protections to all pre-born children.”
Speaking is support of the Heartbeat Bill were Dr. John C. Wilke, founder of National Right to Life, Janet Folger Porter, who organized the event, Joe Scheidler, pioneer activist and director of the Pro-life Action League, blogger and columnist Jill Stanek, Lou Engel of The Call, and others. Presidential candidate and Texas Gov. Rick Perry has also endorsed the legislation.
The Heartbeat Bill passed the Ohio House in June and is now under consideration in the State Senate. To learn how you can help this bill pass, visit www.heartbeatbill.com .
