Georgia Governor Brian Kemp signed into law his state’s latest pro-life legislation Tuesday morning; enacting the so-called “heartbeat” bill that prohibits abortions after doctors can detect a viable heartbeat.
“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,” reports Fox News.
“Georgia is a state that values life,” Kemp said during the signing ceremony. “We stand up for those who are unable to speak for themselves.”
“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,” he added.
