The Oklahoma and Idaho legislatures this week became the 12th and 13th states to pass heartbeat bills that prohibits abortionists from terminating a pregnancy once a baby’s heartbeat can be detected, which typically occurs at six to eight weeks’ gestation. The Oklahoma governor is expected to sign the bill into law while the Idaho governor is being urged to do so by pro-life activists.
HB 2441 was passed by the Oklahoma House of Representatives in March by a vote of 80-19, and this week passed the Senate by vote of 37-10.
In Idaho, SB 1085 was just recently passed in the state Senate following passage in the House, and it is headed to the governor for a possible signature. From The Daily Citizen.
