Okay, I know that I am opening a HUGE can of worms with this one, but let's keep it as civil as possible.
A proposed bill, that is set to be introduced in the Ohio House of Representatives sometime next week by Rep. Lynn Wachtmann, would make abortion illegal after the detection of a fetal heartbeat. Since a heartbeat can be detected as early as 18 days aftter conception, this law esentially outlaws abortion in the state of Ohio.
So, what are your thoughts on this, Is it unconstitutional? Does it interfere with women's rights? Or does it protect unborn children? How about the gravity that it places on getting pregnant on accident in the first place?
Will this increase birth control awareness? or place more children in the care of the state?
Just honest and open debate. Below is the web address on Fox News article covering this story.
