Idaho Governor Brad Little signed into law a pro-life bill today to protect unborn babies from abortion once their heartbeats are detectable. ”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,” Little said.
Arizona Governor Doug Ducey has signed into law a pro-life bill that would ban discriminatory abortions on unborn babies with genetic abnormalities such as Down syndrome. SB 1457 continues Arizona’s legacy as the most pro-life state in the Country and establishes that
Arizona’s laws will be interpreted in the context of valuing all human life. This legislation looks forward to the day that Roe v. Wade is overturned and shows concern for both unborn children and their mothers.
A new bipartisan bill in Texas, the Every Mother Matters Act, looks to offer women considering an abortion an avenue of support highlighting the pro-life movement’s commitment to the aid and well-being of both the unborn and their mothers. Under this bill, women are connected
via a toll-free number with a licensed third-party professional providing information regarding public and private resources they can be directly connected to at no cost.
Unborn babies are still protected in most of Mexico after the Nation’s leaders decided to postpone debate on a measure to legalize abortion. Currently, Mexican states have the authority to protect unborn babies from abortion. Most do, but Mexico City and a few other areas allow
abortion in the first trimester. The country has been facing on-going violent protests by abortion activists as well as international pressure from the United Nations – and potentially, under President Joe Biden, the United States – to legalize the killing of unborn babies throughout
Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt recently signed a bill into law banning abortion once an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable. Last Tuesday, the state Senate passed the heartbeat bill and two other pro-life measures that Stitt also signed into law. “I’m keeping my promise to sign
all pro-life legislation. We now have three more laws protecting the lives of the unborn”! Stitt said in a message on twitter.
NOTE: Polls suggest that many Americans support strong limits on abortion. Gallup polls also, consistently have found a majority of Americans think all or most abortions should be illegal.
A number of states have passed heartbeat laws in recent years but most have been banned from enforcing them due to legal challenges by abortion activist groups.
In 1973 the Supreme Court took away the states’ ability to protect unborn babies from abortion under Roe v. Wade and instead forced states to legalize abortion on demand. Roe made the United States one of only seven countries in the world that allows elective abortion after twenty weeks!
