COLUMBUS, Ohio (WSYX/WTTE) - A bill has been introduced in the Ohio State House to ban all abortions in Ohio.

Unlike previous legislation on abortion, House Bill 565 would consider an "unborn human" a person. The bill would also make no exceptions for rape or incest.

The legislation is sponsored by state Reps. Nino Vitale and Ron Hood.

"We make it very clear in the state of Ohio we consider the unborn child a person just like you, me or any other person that has a right to life,” said Hood.

Gabriel Mann of NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio calls the bill a serious attack and part of a larger plan to overturn Roe v. Wade.

"This isn't your normal abortion ban. This is a plan to end access to all abortion services in the state of Ohio,” explained Mann.

The bill has to go through the legislative process. Opponents promise to fight by calling lawmakers and voicing their concerns.
