On December 22, following overwhelming approval in the state House, Gov. John Kasich signed the Down Syndrome Non-Discrimination Act which prohibits abortion for the sole reason of a Down syndrome diagnosis.
The Ohio Senate approved the measure 20-12. This followed the House’s overwhelming 63-30 vote in support which took place November 1.
Under SB 164 it would be illegal for abortionists to commit or attempt to commit an abortion based on a diagnosis of Down syndrome. Currently Indiana and North Dakota also ban abortions based on genetic anomalies.
