"An unborn child's heartbeat can be detected as soon as 18 days after conception, and supporters of a bill slated to be unveiled in the Ohio Legislature Wednesday say that women should be prohibited from ending pregnancies beyond that milestone. State Rep. Lynn Wachtmann is planning to unveil the 'Heartbeat Bill' and a legislative aide for the Republican tells Fox News that 42 of the 99 representatives in the Ohio state House have signed on to the bill, which would make an exception to the heartbeat rule only in emergency medical situations." [editor's note: This is almost as ludicrous as the "moment of conception" boundary; in most cases, "18 days after conception" is still before the first missed period! - SAT] (02/08/11)
