ATLANTA – Gov. Brian Kemp will sign the controversial ‘heartbeat bill’ into law Tuesday morning, the governor’s office confirmed to Channel 2 Action News.
The bill will ban all abortions after the first sign of a fetal heartbeat, which is approximately six weeks into a pregnancy.
Some worry about the impact the bill could have on the state’s growing film industry.
In addition to restrictions on abortions, the bill also grants citizenship to unborn children and allows mothers to collect child support before birth.
