Ohio governor. signs 'heartbeat' abortion bill

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, a Republican, signed a controversial bill on Thursday that bans abortion's after the first heartbeat is detected.

The law is one of the nation's most restrictive abortion bans.

A fetal heartbeat can be detected as early as five or six weeks into pregnancy before most woman even know they're pregnant.

The bill makes no exceptions for rape or incest.

Ohio joins five other states in the U.S. that have passed similar restrictions on abortions.

Opponents say they vow to sue.
