John Kasich vetoed the so-called âheartbeat bill,â a measure that would have banned all abortions after about six weeks of pregnancy, or before many women even know that they are pregnant. At the same time, Kasich signed a bill banning abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy, with exceptions only for saving a pregnant womanâs life or preventing the âsubstantial and irreversible impairment of a major bodily function.ââAt the risk of sounding discriminatory, which is not at all my goal here, but at the risk of sounding like that, there is no way women should be allowed control over whether or not they are going to have abortions,â Kasich told the Ohio Daily Star. âWomen are wonderful beings, they are kind, loving, incredible and a whole other plethora of adjectives could be used to describe them, but at the end of the day, Iâm sorry to have to say this, but the honest truth is that women used to be all those things.
