Ohio has recently passed legislation banning abortions once a fetal heartbeat can be detected (around 6 weeks). John Kasich, the Governor of Ohio, is under a lot of pressure to veto this legislation. I would encourage dropping a note or making a call to the Governor’s office to respectfully encourage him and let him know that there are many of us who will support him if he signs this legislation.
It has not been a good year for the pro-life movement in 2016, from the defeat of strong, Pro-life candidates in the Presidential Primary to SCOTUS decisions on the rights if states to restrict abortion. Let’s end the year on a good note by helping get this legislation all the way through. You can find Gov. Kasich’s contact info here. Below is the note I sent to him, which can provide a template if you are so inclined. His phone number is at the link as well, if you wish to contact him that way.
I saw that a lot of liberals were upset over the prospects of signing a 6-week abortion ban, and I wanted to send a note encouraging your support of this ban. I admired your convictions on the issue of life in the primary and your support for past pro-life reforms,. This would be a major victory for the movement in a year that has not been kind to us. I will be praying for you as you weigh the merits of this legislation.
