Florida state lawmaker files bill to prohibit abortions after an unborn child’s heartbeat is detected, mirroring a Texas law



Republican Florida state Rep. Webster Barnaby has filed a bill to ban abortions in the Sunshine State after a fetal heartbeat has been detected, except in the case of medical emergencies.

The bill includes text that substantially mirrors the language in a Texas law which has been the subject of national attention.

Like the Texas law, the bill put forward in the Sunshine State would prohibit physicians from knowingly conducting or inducing abortions if they have not tested for an unborn child’s heartbeat or if they detect such a heartbeat.

The Florida bill, like the Lone Star State’s law, would allow people to lodge a civil action against an individual who conducts or induces an abortion in breach of the law, and against those who knowingly participate in activity which “aids or abets the performance or inducement of an abortion” conducted in breach of the law, “regardless of whether the person knew or should have known that the abortion would be performed or induced” against the law.
