Ohio Governor Signs 'Heartbeat' Abortion Bill Into Law

Ohio Gov.

Mike DeWine has signed an anti-abortion rights bill  that's considered by many to be  "one of the nation's most restrictive abortion laws." DeWine signed the  Human Rights and Heartbeat Protection Act  into law Thursday.

The new Ohio state law bans abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected, which is usually about six weeks into a pregnancy.

It also does not make exceptions in cases of rape or incest.

Doctors who perform abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected will now face felony charges and penalties including fines and jail time.

Ohio's House of Representatives voted in support of the bill Wednesday, with the Senate following suit shortly after.

Two versions of the bill had previously passed through the House and Senate but were vetoed by former Ohio Gov.

John Kasich on constitutional grounds.  Gov.

DeWine's support for the bill shouldn't come as a surprise, as he's said in the past  he would "absolutely" sign it  if it ever made it to his desk.

He said the "government's role should be to protect life from the beginning to the end," and that the bill's signing "is consistent with that respect for life and the imperative to protect those who cannot protect themselves." The new law is expected to face some legal challenges, though.

Both  Planned Parenthood  and the  ACLU  said they'd file suit against the legislation if DeWine signed it into law.
