By Micaiah Bilger, LifeNews - Wednesday is a big day for Texas. The new state heartbeat law, which could save tens of thousands of unborn babies from abortion every year, is slated to go into effect. Unless pro-abortion groups succeed in their emergency appeals Tuesday, Texas will be the first state in America to enforce a heartbeat law... The pro-life law, which Gov. Greg Abbott signed in May, prohibits abortions once an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable, typically about six weeks of pregnancy. Exceptions are allowed if the mother’s life is at risk. Unique from other heartbeat laws, the Texas legislation includes a private enforcement mechanism that allows people to file lawsuits against abortionists who violate the law.
