The Heartbeat Bill was signed into law Friday night by Governor Mike DeWine as a result of an "emergency adoption", per the release.

Senate Bill 23- commonly known as the "Heartbeat Bill" was signed as a result of the U.S. Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, according to the release.

Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost lifted the injunction earlier Friday to clear the way for the bill to be signed into law.

Exactly what we need. More impoverished, fatherless children running around the streets. This'll be good for crime rates.
