Dr. James Dobson Sends Letter to Gov. Kasich Urging Him to Sign Ohio's Historic Heartbeat Bill Before Leaving Office

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.—On, Friday, December 14th, 2018, Dr. James Dobson sent a letter to Gov. Kasich urging him to sign HB 258, Ohio's historic "Heartbeat Bill" into law. The entire contents of that letter are as follows:
 
Dear John, 

I write to strongly urge you to sign Ohio's "Heartbeat Bill," HB 258, which protects the sanctity of life for unborn children as early as five (5) weeks or as soon as a heartbeat can be detected. The Ohio General Assembly has been considering the Heartbeat Bill for almost a decade, and I am encouraged that this legislation passed by such an overwhelming majority. 

The Heartbeat Bill should be passed in every state in America, and Ohio is leading the way to reclaim state constitutional and moral authority to enact protections for our tiniest babies. Just last year in 2017, there were a recorded 20,893 abortions in Ohio. This means that every day, on average, there are 57 little babies that die. 

How can we let this happen in our nation, whose very founding stood on the eternal principles of being made in our Creator's image and having our unalienable rights bestowed by Him? The most precious and basic right is the right to life. 

John, you and I have known each other for many years, and you are someone I have considered a friend. You know that this legislation is the morally correct action to give the smallest children a chance at life. I hope and pray that you will do the right thing and stand for the family and the sanctity of life. Make your signature on this bill the defining moment of your legacy for the great state of Ohio.

With prayer and respect,
