Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp Signs ‘Heartbeat’ Bill Into Law

WATCH: Actor Dean Cain Speaks Out On The Georgia Heartbeat Bill

You wouldn’t think it would be controversial to hold the position that children inside the womb with a beating heart should be protected.

Sadly, that’s a position that most Democrats don’t support these days.

Luckily, Democrats aren’t in control of the state of Georgia and the Republican governor there just signed a law protecting the unborn.

From Fox News:

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp signed the “heartbeat” bill into law Tuesday morning.

Kemp kept his campaign promise in signing the bill, HB 481, technically called the “Living Infants Fairness and Equality (LIFE) Act,” which will prohibit abortions in the state after a heartbeat is detected, as early as six weeks into a pregnancy. The law allows exceptions in the case of rape, incest, or if the life of the mother is in danger.

Before the signing of the bill, State Rep. Ed Setzler pointed to science, law, and the simple fact that common sense says a beating heart is a sign of life and those children should receive the full protection of the law. State Sen. Renee Unterman, a former nurse who ushered the bill through the state Senate, said she has waited her entire time as a legislator for this moment, calling it the “culmination of my political career.”

Fantastic news.

The majority of the American people support sensible restrictions to abortion. That puts the Democratic Party completely out of step with where the country is.

What else is new?
