Fetal Heartbeat Co-Sponsors to Participate in Right to Life Press Conference

Jordan Kirkland - March 13th, 2019

On Thursday, legislators who co-sponsored the all-important will participate in a joint session press conference with leadership of Florida Right to Life.

The bill, also known as the , would prohibit a person from performing or inducing an abortion on a pregnant person when a fetal heartbeat has been detected. The proposal would also make it a felony to knowingly perform or induce an abortion on a pregnant person if a fetal heartbeat has been detected.

This would not apply if two physicians certify in writing that the abortion is necessary to save the pregnant person’s life or avert a serious risk of substantial and irreversible physical impairment of a major bodily function of the pregnant person other than a psychological condition.

The measure was introduced by Senator Dennis Baxley and has been praised by conservatives looking to be the example when it comes to fighting for the unborn life.
