Georgia governor Brian Kemp has signed a new pro-life bill called the “heartbeat bill.”
Democrats are outraged at females not being able to get abortions after a child’s heartbeat is detected.
Kemp kept his campaign promise in signing the bill, HB 481, technically called the “Living Infants Fairness and Equality (LIFE) Act,” that will prohibit abortions in the state after a heartbeat is detected, as early as six weeks into a pregnancy.
The law allows exceptions in the case of rape, incest, or if the life of the mother is in danger.
Before the signing of the bill, State Rep. Ed Setzler pointed to science, law, and the simple fact that common sense says a beating heart is a sign of life and those children should receive the full protection of the law. State Sen. Renee Unterman, who ushered the bill through the state Senate, said she has waited her entire time as a legislator for this moment, calling it the “culmination of my political career.”
“Georgia is a state that values life,” Kemp said before putting his signature to the LIFE Act. “We stand up for those who are unable to speak for themselves.”Kemp said he recognizes the bill will be challenged.”But our job is to do what is right, not what is easy,”
Kemp added. “We will not back down. We will always continue to fight for life.”Credit foxnews.com
