Georgia passes pro-life ‘heartbeat bill’, awaits governor’s signature
The Georgia House has voted in favor of HB 481 dubbed the “Heartbeat Bill” in a vote of 92 to 78. The bill will outlaw abortion when a fetal heartbeat can be detected, as early as six weeks gestation.

The bill passed in the Georgia Senate on March 22 before returning to the House with changes. Now it will head to the desk of Gov. Brian Kemp who has said he will sign it.  It, unfortunately, includes exceptions for children conceived in rape or incest who will continue to be at risk of being legally killed up to 20 weeks, as is the current limit for abortions in the state.
