Senate bill banning abortions after fetal heartbeat detected moving forward


CAPITOL. MARK: PASSIONS WERE HIGH ON BOTH
SIDES OF THE ISSUE, BUT THERE’S
ONE THING SUPPORTERS AND
OPPONENTS CAN AGREE ON: TH
BILL IS DESTINED FOR A LEGAL
CHALLENGE.>>I CAME HERE TODAY TO SHOW YOU
THE FACE OF A SURVIVOR, AN
ABORTION SURVIVOR. MARK: CLAIRE CULWELL TOLD STATE
LAWMAKERS SHE SUPPORTS SENATE
BILL 9 BECAUSE HER MOTHER TRIED
TO HAVE AN ABORTION, BUT THE
PROCEDURE WAS BOTCHED. THE BILL WOULD OUTLAW ABORTION
IF A FETAL HEARTBEAT IS
DETECTED. A PREGNANT SUPPORTER, APRIL
LANHAM, EVEN ALLOWED LAWMAKERS
TO HEAR THE FETAL HEARTBEA
INSIDE HER.>>I THINK THE HEARTBEAT IS THE
MOST POWERFUL SOUND IN THE
WORLD. MARK: BECAUSE A FETAL
HEARTBEAT CAN BE DETECTED AROUND
SIX WEEKS, OPPONENTS SAY THE
BILL WOULD EFFECTIVELY BAN ALL ABORTION
>>I CAN ALSO PROMISE YOU THAT
PREGNANCY THROUGH, I WOULD HAVE
DONE WHAT WOMEN HAVE DONE FOR
ALL THE DECADES PEOPLE LIKE YOU
HAVE BEEN TRYING TO STOP ABORTIONS. I WOULD HAVE GONE TO ANY
LENGTHS, MEDICALLY OVERSEEN OR
NOT, TO END MY PREGNANCY. MAR
OPPONENTS ALSO SAY LAWMAKERS
KNOW SIMILAR LAWS HAVE BEEN
STRUCK DOWN IN THE COURT>>WELL, MY CONCERNS ARE WE HAVE
MANY MORE CRISES FACING KENTUCKY
AND THAT THIS LITIGATION H
BEEN PROVEN UNCONSTITUTIONAL SO
IT WILL END UP IN THE COUR
SYSTEM AND WE’LL BE SPENDING MONEY TO FIGHT THE LITIGATION. MARK: PRO-LIFE ADVOCATES
BELIEVE PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP’S
TWO SUPREME COURT JUSTICES GIVE
THEM A BETTER CHANCE.>>I THINK EVERY BILL CAN BE
VETTED THROUGH THE COURT SYSTE
BUT TH VIABILITY OF THE AGE OF
THE CHILD OUTSIDE THE WOMB IS
CHANGING AND I THINK IT’S TIME
FOR THE SUPREME COURT TO REVISIT THIS AND LOOK AT THE AGE OF
VIABILITY.>>AND TO THE ACLU, I CAN SAY
AFFIRMATIVELY, WE LOOK FORWARD
TO YOUR LAWSUIT. MARK: KENTUCKY IS NOT THE ONLY
STATE WITH THIS TYPE OF BILL. LAWMAKERS IN EIGHT OTHER STATES
ARE CURRENTLY CONSIDERING FETAL
HEARTBEAT ABORTION BILLS. IN FRANKFORT, MARK VANDERHOFF,
