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."
The Xenia Community School District may be facing more cuts if a levy on the ballot next week fails. The district is asking for a 5 year 4.8 mill emergency levy to help address a $3 million deficit.
In the last two years, the district has already cut 8.8 million dollars from their budget. Teachers and administrators have had pay freezes with no step increases and will pay higher insurance premiums. That's caused a controversy with the Xenia Educational Support professionals Union, who represent bus drivers, custodians, food service workers and other staff.
