The governor of Georgia kept his promise to sign a pro-life bill into law, signaling significant support for the pro-life community.

Gov. Brian Kemp signed the Living Infants Fairness and Equality (LIFE) Act, passed in both chambers of the Georgia Congress, which “will prohibit abortions in the state after a heartbeat is detected, as early as six weeks into a pregnancy,” according to Fox News.

The law is nicknamed “the heartbeat bill” because it bans abortions after a baby’s heart begins to beat. There are exceptions for cases of rape, incest, and if the mother’s life is in danger.

“Georgia is a state that values life,” Kemp reportedly said just before signing the bill. “We stand up for those who are unable to speak for themselves.”

“Before the signing of the bill, State Rep. Ed Setzler pointed to science, law, and the simple fact that common sense says a beating heart is a sign of life and those children should receive the full protection of the law,” according to the report. “State Sen. Renee Unterman, a former nurse who ushered the bill through the state Senate, said she has waited her entire time as a legislator for this moment, calling it the ‘culmination of my political career.'”

The Alabama House of Representatives recently passed a similar bill as the state inches closer to protecting the sanctity of life.
