Here’s how developed fetuses can be under Ohio’s new abortion ban

On Tuesday, Ohio’s legislature passed a bill that, if signed into law by Governor John Kasich, would dramatically limit women’s reproductive rights in the state.

The so-called “heartbeat bill” would ban doctors from performing legal abortions on women with “a detectable fetal heartbeat“, even in cases where pregnancy results from rape or incest.

Another anti-abortion bill sent to Kasich for signing into law – or vetoing – would ban the practice after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

Below are the key biological stages of pregnancy as they relate to a developing baby, including when its heartbeat is first detectable.
