Dr. James Dobson, among other popular Christian leaders, condemned John Kasich for vetoing the "Heartbeat bill."

"Now, I join with millions of evangelicals and Catholics in condemning Gov. John Kasich's veto of the bill. This was a cowardice [sic} and shameful action. Signing the bill would have been the constitutionally correct thing to do; it would have also been morally correct to do. Governor Kasich has sent a message to voters in Ohio—and across the nation—that the governor isn't as committed to life as he professes to be," Dobson posted to his Facebook page.

The "heartbeat bill" would have made abortion illegal the moment a fetal heartbeat was detected. 

Dobson is not the only leader to rebuke Kasich's actions. 

"History will not look kindly on Gov. Kasich for killing the best chance at protecting children that we have seen in a lifetime! This bill, which would protect babies with beating hearts, went down to defeat because Governor Kasich, who campaigned as a pro-life advocate, killed the bill. Those who bend the knee to the worst ruling in history (Roe v. Wade) are no better than the ones who wrote it," Mark Harrington, National Director of Created Equal said.
