Human life begins at conception, and a fetal heartbeat is proof of life. If a fetal heartbeat (or fetal pole activity) exists then an abortion is ending a life and therefore shouldn’t be allowed. Abortion providers who knowingly end innocent lives in violation of this bill should be punished.
Fetal heartbeat bills are based in faulty science: the so-called “heartbeat” is actually cardiac activity in the fetal pole. This bill is far too restrictive, as it doesn’t provide exceptions for cases of rape and incest in which women would want to abort and would ban abortion too early in the pregnancy.
