Two state governors have signed into a bill aimed at restricting a woman’s right to an abortion.
Arizona’s law bans abortions in cases where the mother’s decision to terminate is related solely to genetic issues.
A fetal heartbeat is now law in Idaho, meaning a women cannot choose to have an abortion after a heartbeat is detected. That can happen about six weeks into a pregnancy-before a lot of women know they’re pregnant.
There is a trigger provision, meaning the law won’t go into effect unless the federal appeals court in another state upholds similar legislation.
