Lawmaker, Pastors Introduce Bill to Ban Abortions After a Heartbeat is Detected

A Tennessee lawmaker introduced a bill Thursday to ban abortions after a fetus has a heartbeat.
Rep. Micah Van Huss, R-Jonesborough, live-streamed a press conference on Facebook about the bill around 9:30 a.m. 

Lawmaker, Pastors Introduce Bill to Ban Abortions After a Heartbeat is Detected


The "Heartbeat bill" or HB 108 prohibits abortions from the point a fetal heartbeat is detected and requires fetal heartbeat testing prior to an abortion. 

Van Huss said that time frame is on average eight weeks.

"I see the election of president Trump as an opportunity to protect life more as a nation," said Van Huss.
Van Huss said he believes the bill will effectively ban 90 percent of the abortions in Tennessee. 

Ben Graham, Pastor of Music City Baptist Church, also spoke Thursday about his support for the bill.

"We think it's important not as pastors not as churches but as individuals to protect life," Graham said. 

"It is our pleasure as the ten pastors network and me to stand with these legislators on this important bill We know that it's not going to be popular amongst everybody, but we're not here to try to find laws for everybody like we're here to make sure we define in our laws what is right for every person."
