The Ohio House has passed new heartbeat-bill legislation, which prohibits abortions after a fetal heartbeat can be detected, usually at about six-weeks’ gestation.

Lawmakers in the Ohio House have continued a lame-duck session (occurs whenever one Congress meets after its successor is elected) by approving a so-called anti-abortion “heartbeat bill.”

The strict proposal would ban abortions in Ohio after the first fetal heartbeat is detected, as early as six weeks into a pregnancy.

The GOP-controlled House voted 58-35 Thursday in favor of the bill, which does not include any exceptions for rape or incest. The legislation goes next to the Senate.

An earlier version of the bill was vetoed by Governor John Kasich.
