Michele Bachmann Explains Pro-Life "Heartbeat Informed Consent Act"

| by Jill Stanek

Congresswoman Bachmann explains the importance of her new bipartisan legislation, the Heartbeat Informed Consent Act, which empowers women to make an informed decision regarding themselves and their unborn child. The bill places a simple requirement on abortion providers by requiring them to make the unborn child’s heartbeat visible through ultrasound, describe the baby’s cardiac activity and make the heartbeat audible, if the child is old enough for it to be detectable.
