A law maker proposes a bill to make sure what happens to “Laura Hope Smith” never happens to another woman. The only problem? The bill doesn’t have anything to do with her.
The bills will now move to the senate for a vote.
The senate moves even further in trying to make an abortion as inaccessible and shameful as they can.
Oklahoma is one step from passing a mostly redundant heartbeat law and Louisiana is considering a bill to require women listen to embryonic or fetal heartbeats.
The state already requires the woman to look at an ultrasound before having an abortion. Now, they want her to listen to a heartbeat, too.
There is a lot of confusion about 20-week abortion bans, and for good reason. Not only do they pick arbitrary dates based on medically-disproven claims of “fetal pain,” at least one is so mixed up it shows that “fetal pain” is not even the basis of the ban.
