Georgia Governor Signs Pro-Life ‘Heartbeat’ Abortion Bill


On Tuesday morning Georgia’s Republican Governor, Brian Kemp, signed the state’s “fetal heartbeat bill” which bans abortion as soon as a heartbeat can be detected.

The pro-life bill maintains that abortion is against the law when a fetal heartbeat is heard, something that usually happens about five of six weeks into a pregnancy.

The law becomes the most restrictive abortion law in the U.S.

So, naturally and immediately, pro-abortion activists claimed they would take the state to court to sue the state over the bill.

Many pro-death advocates say that five weeks is so early, many women who might want to abort would not yet even be aware they are pregnant.

Georgia’s bill joins laws already signed by the states of Kentucky, Mississippi and Ohio. However, the laws in those three states have all been stopped by lawsuits and have not been implemented.

One pro-death activist warned that Georgia’s bill is part of a broader play among the pro-life lobby.

“The surge in attempts to ban abortion in the earliest stages of pregnancy underscores that the end goal of anti-abortion politicians and activists is to ban all abortion — at any point during pregnancy and for any reason,” said Guttmacher senior issue manager Elizabeth Nash.

CBS notes that Georgia Republicans have also passed several other pro-life measures:

Prior to Tuesday’s legislation, Georgia politicians have already passed a host of anti-abortion access laws, according to the Guttmacher Institute. Women in Georgia are required to wait 24 hours between requesting and obtaining an abortion in the state and minors are required to notify their parents.

This new campaign in the states is a welcome new wrinkle in the fight against the left’s death cult.
