Alabama House Plans to Reintroduce ‘Heartbeat Bill’

from Live Action News 

The Alabama House of Representatives plans to reintroduce the pro-life ‘Heartbeat Bill,’ which, according to LifeSiteNews, “would make committing an abortion against a baby after his/her heartbeat is detected a Class C felony” and would make it a crime “to fail to try to detect the baby’s heartbeat, unless the mother’s life was in danger.”

This is the third time such a bill has been introduced by the Alabama House. The bill died twice once it reached the state senate. This time, however, the bill will have a senate sponsor, Sen. Gerald Allen (R-Tuscaloosa). Even so, the bill is not without controversy, even among ardent pro-lifers. LifeSiteNews reports:
Some pro-lifers oppose the Heartbill Bill and similar legislation because they fear the inevitable legal challenge could lead to the U.S. Supreme Court strengthening Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton, the infamous dual-ruling which made abortion legal throughout all nine months of pregnancy.
