Williamson still pleased with 'heartbeat' bill

Despite protests, laws elsewhere, representative thinks Georgia got it right

Posted: Wednesday, May 29, 2019 12:00 am

Gov. Brian Kemp signed a highly controversial abortion bill into law earlier this month.

House Bill 481, more commonly known “heartbeat” bill, prohibits abortion when a fetal heartbeat is detected, which is around the sixth week of pregnancy. Now it is called the Living Infants Fairness and Equality, or LIFE, Act since it has been signed into law.
