Near Total Abortion Ban Introduced

Well, that didn’t take long.

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) on Thursday introduced the first federal “heartbeat bill” modeled on a failed Ohio attempt to end legal abortion as early as six weeks into a pregnancy—before many people know they’re pregnant.

“Heartbeat bills” amount to total abortion bans. They have been declared unconstitutional in federal court.

[…]

A King press release called Roe v. Wade unconstitutional, adding that under HR 490, “if a heartbeat is detected, the baby is protected.”

Oh look, he rhymes. And… 6 weeks? 6 weeks?

I have no idea if this bill will be become law. I have no idea if they’ll repeal the ACA. I do know that the LGBTQ community and Muslims are up next.

Elections matter.
