Idaho Governor Signs Heartbeat Bill into Law

Idaho Gov. Brad Little (R)
Yet another state has codified a bill banning abortions targeting unborn babies with detectable heartbeats.

On April 27, Idaho Gov. Brad Little signed HB366 into law, banning abortions after a baby's heartbeat is detected, which can happen as early as six weeks gestation. The law includes exceptions for rape and medical emergencies.

In a statement, Gov. Little said, “Idaho is a state that values the most innocent of all lives – the lives of babies. We should never relent in our efforts to protect the lives of the preborn.”

The Associated Press writes that the bill contains a "trigger provision" and will not go into effect unless a federal appeals court upholds a similar law from another state. Several heartbeat bills from other states are currently being litigated.
