Also known as the Fetal Heartbeat Bill, it bans abortion if a fetal heartbeat is detected.
It is questionable whether this would survive a constitutional challenge under existing Supreme Court precedent, as states can ban abortion after “viability” which, legally, is considered to occur at 24 weeks.
Passage of the bill could result in a lawsuit that would reach the U.S. Supreme Court and provide a context in which Roe v. Wade could be overturned.
