If vote is signed off by Republican governor, it will become one of the US’s toughest termination laws
The US state of Georgia has approved legislation outlawing abortions after a foetal heartbeat can be detected. If signed by the state’s Republican governor, Brian Kemp, who campaigned in favour of tougher laws, it would become among the strictest abortion bans in the US.
“Georgia values life,” Kemp said in a statement on Friday. “The legislature’s bold action reaffirms our priorities and who we are as a state.”
