(Worthy News) - Republican Ohio Gov. John Kasich has signed a bill into law that would imprison doctors who perform an abortion method commonly used during the second trimester, but vetoed another bill that would have banned abortion after six weeks.
"I'm pro-life," Kasich said at the bill's signing Wednesday, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. "I think the issue, whether you're pro-life or you're pro-choice, is moving in the direction of the earliest the better and not the latest."
The ban he signed into law would affect abortions 12 weeks into a pregnancy or later that use a method known as dilation and evacuation. Doctors perform these types of abortion by using surgery tools and suction to remove a fetus from the womb. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More...) ]
