pregnancy ultrasoundOhio's governor is running out of excuses for opposing the Heartbeat bill, says a pro-life activist. 

Both the Ohio House and Senate have passed the measure, which would prohibit abortions on preborn children if a heartbeat can be detected, and now the measure is in front of Gov. John Kasich.

Janet Porter, president of Faith 2 Action, says the Senate passed the bill 18-3, while 20 votes were needed to be veto proof. Those votes are now there, she tells OneNewsNow.

"We're at 20 veto-proof votes for an override in the state of Ohio, not only in the Ohio Senate but in the Ohio House," she advises.

In 2016, Governor Kasich vetoed the Heartbeat Bill saying it wouldn't withstand a court challenge and that lawsuits would be too costly for the state.

But she points out that the U.S. Supreme Court has two pro-life justices, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, which means a high court challenge faces better odds.

"We're calling on Governor Kasich to return to his pro-life roots," says Porter, "and sign the Heartbeat Bill to protect the children in our state whose hearts beat like an SOS cry for protection, because all of his excuses now are gone."
