WASHINGTON (WKBN) – Ohio governor and presidential hopeful John Kasich hit the talk show circuit Sunday.

On CNN’s “State of the Union,” the issue of abortion came up, specifically, a bill being considered in Ohio that would ban abortion if the reason for the procedure is because the child would have Down Syndrome.

Kasich has refrained from talking about the bill because it’s still being debated, but broke his silence Sunday, saying, “I’m a governor. I’m a CEO. I have to have a hand steady on the wheel. But in this case, I’m more than glad to say that of course I would sign that.”

Kasich has said in the past that he opposes abortion except in cases of rape, incest or to preserve the life of the mother.

The bill is set to be voted on in October.
