NASHVILLE- Tennessee State Representative Micah Van Huss, along with several republican lawmakers passed the “Tennessee Heartbeat Bill.” Rep. Huss told a state House subcommittee on Wednesday he considers killing any child, including a fetus, as “evil.” The sub committee voted to advance the bill to be heard by the full House Health Committee.

Huss says his bill to ban abortion once a fetal heartbeat has been detected does not include exceptions for situations involving incest or rape because he does not believe it’s appropriate.
The Heartbeat Bill passed out of sub. It will be heard in full committee next week. Thanks to everyone for your prayers and support. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️Thank you Micah Van Huss, Dr. Bryan Terry, State Representative Jerry Sexton, and Matthew Hill, and Sam Whitson.

Tennessee is among several states considering heartbeat bills amid hopes from some abortion opponents nationwide that a conservative U.S. Supreme Court majority will review the landmark Roe v. Wade ruling and uphold stricter abortion prohibitions.
