Abortion foes to air ad on Ohio's 'Heartbeat Bill'

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Supporters of an Ohio bill that would ban abortions after the first detectable fetal heartbeat will begin airing an ad in Dayton tonight, urging voters to ask their state Senators to pass the bill.

Ohio ProLife Action says their ad will air on the FOX News cable channel during The O'Reilly Factor and Hannity.

If passed, the proposal would be one of the strictest anti-abortion measures in the U.S. A transcript of the voiceover says that the bill would "save the equivalent of a school bus full of children every single day."
