Ohio Representative Speaks Out Against “Heartbeat” Bill

Robin Marty

Watch Democratic Rep. Dan Ramos accuse legislators of breaking their oath of office by voting the bill out of committee.

“We all put our hand on the bible and swore we would uphold the constitution,” he reminds fellow legislators.
