Ohio House Bill 125, better known as the Heartbeat Bill, which passed in the House on June 28, 2011, would have criminalized abortion after a baby's heartbeat could be detected, normally 18 days after conception. Senate president Tom Niehuas, R-New Richmond, did not allow the bill to come to a vote in the Senate citing constitutional concerns.
Ironically, news reports cited a "pro-life" group as the reason for the bill's failure. Ohio Right to Life, which is the state affiliate of the National Right to Life Committee, was named by a Cleveland news organization:
Mike Gonidakis, Executive Director of Ohio Right to Life, told the Columbus Dispatch in March of 2011 that the Heartbeat bill was extreme, and that it could backfire by prompting the Supreme Court to reaffirm Roe v. Wade.
David Lewis states:
"As Christians we have a duty to publicly name Ohio Right to Life as a collaborator with 'pro-choice' politicians and their child-killing associates at Planned Parenthood, and other abortion mills.
"Mr. Gonidakis uses the same invalid argument that National Right to Life has used to destroy numerous baby-saving initiatives across the nation. Gonidakis fears a challenge, a fight, at the U.S. Supreme Court level. But a fight is exactly what is needed. Over 50 million babies have been murdered in our country. Babies deserve that we fight tooth-and-nail for them.
"Mr. Gonidakis has been known to compromise in the past on important issues. He told the Cincinnati Enquirer that compromises had to be made when it comes to funding of the child-killing giant Planned Parenthood.
"Ohio Right to Life does not represent the pro-life constituency that elected pro-life leaders in the Ohio legislature."
