Heartbeat law could lead Supreme Court to reconsider Roe v. Wade


Here is how it happen.  In 2013 North Dakota passed (H.B. 1456) a low making it a felony for a physician to perform an abortion on an unborn baby whose heartbeat is detected.

The law was challenged because of Roe v. Wade.  This week, the Eight Circuit Court of Appeals (which is the regional court over North Dakota) ruled against the fetal heartbeat law.

The Abortionist cannot allow this law to go unchallenged, because than other states will follow by creating the same law – stopping many Abortions across the nation.  So they had to challenge the law, but by winning at the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals, it creates the opportunity to appeal the decision to the US Supreme Court – which is basically to reconsider the Roe v. Wade decision in like of the medical advancements since 1973.

The Daily Signal has more on the story.

“An unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable at about 6-7 weeks. Under current Supreme Court jurisprudence, states may not prohibit women from having an abortion before the unborn baby is “viable”—when the baby is capable of living outside the womb (with or without medical assistance).

At the time Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973, a baby was considered viable after the second trimester (27-28 weeks), whereas today, babies generally are viable at 24 weeks—and sometimes even earlier.”

Detecting the child’s heartbeat is clearly a ‘viable’ condition that the baby has a functioning circular system.
