I was pleased to learn that you have signed House Bill 314, which will give more Ohio women considering abortion the opportunity to see ultrasound images of their babies. This is important legislation that greatly enhances the concept of informed consent for women in the process of making a life-altering decision. It also will help meet to goal expressed by activists on both side of the abortion debate – to reduce the number of abortions. It’s well established that when a woman sees for herself that her fetus is a living being, she is more likely to choose life.
As a member of the Center for Moral Clarity, I supported this bill and had prayed that you would sign it into law. I was especially hopeful for this outcome once I learned that you sponsored similar legislation while you were a member of Congress.
Thank you for responding appropriately on this issue.
