Pro-life lawmakers in Ohio hope to save babies’ lives through new state legislation modeled on the Texas “Heartbeat” law.

Life News reports:

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports Ohio state Reps. Jena Powell, R-Arcanum, and Thomas Hall, R-Madison Township, introduced the 2363 Act (state House Bill 480) on Tuesday to allow private citizens to sue abortionists for aborting unborn babies.

The number 2,363 represents the number of unborn babies who are aborted every day in the United States, Powell and Hall said.

“The sanctity of human life, born and preborn, must be preserved in Ohio,” Powell said in a statement. “The 2363 Act is about protecting our fundamental, constitutional right to be born and live. Abortion kills children, scars families and harms women. We can and must do better.”

Similar to the Texas law, their bill would allow private enforcement of an abortion ban, meaning people may file lawsuits against abortionists and anyone who “aids or abets” in the killing of an unborn baby. Exceptions would be allowed if the mother’s life is at risk. Abortionists convicted under the legislation could be penalized with a $10,000 fine per abortion.

“Representative Powell and I, as the two youngest serving members in the Ohio House, are part of the generation that will end abortion in Ohio and across America,” Hall said in a statement. “It is vital that we come together at this pivotal moment to lead in defense of the most vulnerable.”

The proof that abortion is wrong if only we would open our eyes & ears to receive the information. You only need to SEE the photos of BABIES IN THE WOMB AT 6 WEEKS TO BELIEVE!! We can believe that it is a car even before manufacturing begins BUT NOT THAT A BABY IS A BABY BEFORE IT IS BORN. This is DESTROYING AMERICA but that is what evil socialist / communist dems are all about THE DESTRUCTION OF AMERICA. WE ARE DESTROYING OURSELVES FROM WITHIN WILLINGLY!!

Why is it murder when a pregnant mother is killed but NOT WHEN THEY DO NOT WANT THE CHILD?? MURDER IS MURDER! GOD SAYS IT IS MURDER. IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO HAVE A BABY THEN DO SOMETHING “BEFORE” YOU DO THE ACT!!
