The Ohio legislature will soon hear “testimony” from it’s youngest witness ever:
A fetus has been scheduled as a legislative witness in Ohio on a unique bill that proposes outlawing abortions after the first heartbeat can be medically detected.
Faith2Action, the anti-abortion group that has targeted Ohio to pilot the measure, called the in-utero witness the youngest to ever come before the House Health Committee at nine weeks old.

An aide to committee Chairman Lynn Wachtmann said a pregnant woman will be brought before the committee and an ultrasound image of her uterus will be projected onto a screen. The heartbeat of the fetus will be visible in color.
Most other pro-life groups aren’t even bothering to support the bill since it would never survive a challenge in the courts. Still, you have to give Faith2Action credit for their creative attempt to bring attention to this issue.
