The law would ban abortion before most women realize they’re pregnant and practitioners who are found performing abortions after detection of a heartbeat could face a year in prison.

Dawn Laguens, a spokesperson for the Planned Parenthood Action Fund is quoted as saying, “After years of passing anti-abortion laws under the guise of protecting women’s health and safety, they lay bare their true motives: to ban abortion in the state of Ohio”.
