Texas Heartbeat law inspires 8 states to follow suit
Around 150,000 people marched in the freezing cold last week at the March for Life, in honor of the more than 63 million babies who have been killed by abortion since Roe v. Wade.
Texas has been doing its part to lower the death toll through the passage of the Texas heartbeat law which inspires other states to follow suit; has saved over 22,000 preborn babies’ lives since going into effect on Sept. 1, 2021; and .
Arkansas, Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and South Dakota are all currently considering similar legislation.
The Texas heartbeat law, which was signed into law by Gov. Greg Abbott on May 19, 2021, requires abortionists to check for a baby’s heartbeat and to inform the mother if a heartbeat is detected. Once a heartbeat is detected—which can occur as early as around five to six weeks gestation—the abortionist must take all necessary steps to protect the life of the preborn child.
The Texas heartbeat law has a private enforcement mechanism that empowers anyone to sue abortionists and other participants in an illegal abortion, rather than having the government enforce such a violation. Ever since the law has gone into effect, virtually all abortions in Texas have been brought to a halt. Even before it took effect, we outlined why the Texas heartbeat law is sound science and strong strategy.
The U.S. Supreme Court has weighed in largely in favor of the Texas heartbeat law four times, and it has allowed the law to remain in effect despite enormous pressure and legal requests to strike the law down and halt its enforcement.
