BILL BANNING ABORTIONS WHEN FETAL HEARTBEAT DETECTED ADVANCES

A bill prohibiting abortion in cases where a fetal heartbeat is detected passed the Senate Public Health and Welfare Committee today, Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves said.

Senate Bill 2116, which provides an exemption for cases of medical emergencies, heads to the Senate for consideration. The bill is sponsored by Sens. Angela Hill, R-Picayune, and Chris Caughman, R-Mendenhall.

“I thank Senators Hill and Caughman for introducing legislation to stop the barbaric practice of ending life in the womb even though a heartbeat is plainly detected,” Lt. Gov. Reeves said. “I am committed to making Mississippi the safest place in America for an unborn child.”
