Anti-Abortion Activists Try To Force Kasich's Hand On 'Heartbeat Bill'
Backers of the so called "Heartbeat Bill" are getting some help from evangelical leaders.
And they are sending a message to state lawmakers and Governor John Kasich. Ohio Public Radio's Jo Ingles reports.
Pastor JC Church with the Family Research Council is calling on Kasich to either sign it into law or veto it immediately so lawmakers can override the veto before the holiday break - or during the break, if needed.
“Many will say, ‘It’s the holidays. It’s difficult.’ That doesn’t wash any more ladies and gentleman, not when souls are hanging in the balance.”
The faith leaders say it would be fitting for lawmakers to override the veto on Christmas Day. Senate President Larry Obhof says he expects a vote this week but as for an override...
“We will cross that bridge when we get to it.”
Kasich has 10 business days to veto the bill if it passes.
