Gov. John Kasich has signed one abortion ban, but vetoed another one.
Kasich used his line-item veto power and struck down the so-called “Heartbeat Bill”, which would ban abortion at the point a fetal heartbeat could be detected. But he left the child abuse bill that ban was attached to intact.
If the Heartbeat Bill had become law, it would be the strictest abortion ban in the country, and many critics said it was unconstitutional. But Kasich signed another ban that would outlaw abortions at 20 weeks of pregnancy.
