Dr. Willke not only testified in the House and Senate in favor of the Heartbeat Bill, he helped us draft it.” In one of his final speeches at the Ohio Statehouse, Dr. Willke said, “There’s something almost magical about the heartbeat. Is there a life?  Well, if there’s a heart beating, there’s a life. Of course.”

The best way to honor Dr. Willke is to finish his work of protecting children and ending abortion. We have named the Heartbeat Bill the “Dr. Willke Heartbeat Bill” in his honor. We will pass it in his legacy.
