Stop the Heartless Fetal “Heartbeat Bill”

2018-01-30T10:08:57+00:00 January 30th, 2018|Categories: Take Action|

SB 244/HB 108, co-sponsored by Sen. Mark Pody and Rep. Micah Van Huss, would prohibit abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected — as early as six weeks into a pregnancy. This is often so early into a pregnancy that it would be tantamount to outlawing almost all abortions — meaning that even before a woman may know she is pregnant, she and her family could have the full range of medical options taken away from them.
