Lawmakers in Louisiana could pass a so-called “Heartbeat Bill” this week, adding to the growing number of states restricting abortion rights. President Trump tweeted he believes some of the states’ laws go too far.
EDITOR’S NOTE: An earlier version of this report included video of the Louisiana House debating House Bill 560 sponsored by Representative Neil Abramson. House Bill 560 is not a bill about abortion rights and is not part of the so-called “heartbeat” bill. Rep. Abramson is also opposed to the so-called “heartbeat bill.”May 20, 2019
