September 20, 2015 4:04 p.m.

Republican presidential candidate and Ohio Gov. John Kasich said Sunday that he would sign a bill in his state that would ban abortions if the reason for the procedure was because of a Down syndrome diagnosis.

Kasich told Jake Tapper on “State of the Union” Sunday that he was “more than glad” to say he would approve the bill.

The bill in Ohio’s statehouse is scheduled to be voted on in October, according to CNN.

“I would sign it, yes,” Kasich told Tapper. “Look, I’m a governor. I’m a CEO. I have to have my hand steady on the wheel. But in this case, I’m more than glad to say that of course I would sign that.”
