Ohio's new Gov. Mike DeWine, a Republican, is pledging to sign into law a bill that would make abortions illegal once a fetal heartbeat is detected, which can be as early as six weeks into a pregnancy.

DeWine told radio host Hugh Hewitt he would sign the "heartbeat bill," legislation his predecessor John Kasich, also a Republican, vetoed last month before leaving office.

"Yes, absolutely," DeWine said when asked if he will sign the measure.

"We will do this. I just saw the headline, a court struck down another heartbeat bill for another state. But ultimately, Hugh, you and I both know that this thing once it's passed in Ohio . . . once it becomes law, Planned Parenthood is going to be in the next day, or that day, filing a lawsuit. But ultimately, this will work its way up to the United States Supreme Court. And they'll make that decision."

Kasich signed into law a 20-week ban on abortions at the end of 2016. At the same time, he vetoed a "heartbeat bill." Last month, he vetoed another version of the legislation.

The New York legislature approved a bill Tuesday that will allow abortions to be performed up until a baby's due date.
