Ohio Governor John Kasich vetoed the “heartbeat” the law that would ban abortion on detection of the first heartbeat. This law was passed by the Ohio House of Representatives in November and by the Senate in December. During an exceptional Christmas session, the Senate met to vote to cancel the veto, but with 19 votes in favour and 13 against, the cancellation could not take place: a minimum of 20 votes is required to override a governor’s veto of a law.
John Kasich had already vetoed similar legislation in 2016.
