Ohio bill aims to teach public school kids about humanity of preborn children

With the abortion industry on a tear to convert younger and younger devotees, House Bill 90 couldn’t come soon enough. Introduced by pro-life legislators in Ohio, the measure would require that fetal development be taught in public schools in an aim to increase understanding and respect for human life, according to LifeSiteNews.

“When we are able to more clearly see the scientific reality of life in the womb, we are also able to understand the brutality and inhumanity of abortion,” Ohio Right to Life legislative affairs director Jessica Warner testified in support of the bill, the Toledo Blade reports.

Sponsored by Rep. Naraj Antani (R-Ohio), the measure requires—among other things—that the Department of Health (ODH) provide information about the humanity of an unborn child in an aim to achieve an abortion-free society. Specifically, the bill mandates the state board of education collaborate with the department of health to develop program instruction—without any input from abortion providers.

Additionally, the curriculum must provide “accurate, scientifically verifiable information concerning the probable anatomical and physiological characteristics of the unborn child at each of the following gestational intervals,” according to the bill.

The beauty—and power—of the bill is that students will learn what a preborn child looks like at one to two weeks all the way up to a fully formed child at 38 to 40 weeks, dispelling and obliterating the Left’s egregious talking point that the preborn child is nothing more than a blob of tissue. 

For example, we already know—and science has confirmed—that a preborn human’s heartbeat can be heard early into pregnancy. The heart is pumping blood through the fetal body by 5 weeks of gestation and is fully formed by 10 weeks gestation,” Donna J. Harrison M.D., recently told Live Action News. Harrison is the executive director at the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists (AAPLOG).


House Bill 90 is still in House Committee, Rep Antani’s office told Live Action News. Whether or not the Buckeye State’s Republican majority will send it to Governor Mike DeWine (R) for a signature as they did with the heartbeat law in April — currently enjoined by a judge — remains to be seen.
