Governor of Tennessee set to sign heartbeat abortion bill
The governor of Tennessee has said he will sign a new bill that prohibits abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detected, Christian Headlines reported Monday. Sponsored by Gov. Bill Lee earlier this year, the bill also bans abortion on the grounds of sex, race, or a diagnosis of Downâ€™s syndrome.
The legislation was passed by the Tennessee House of Representatives 70-20 and by the Senate 23-5. Both chambers have a Republican majority. The bill criminalizes abortion on an unborn child where a fetal heartbeat is detected â€“ sometimes as early as six weeks into the womanâ€™s pregnancy. Medical practitioners are required to offer the woman an ultrasound or to hear the heartbeat, though she does not have to do either.
The bill also requires that women having a chemical abortion must be told that â€śit may be possible to reverseâ€ť the process if she changes her mind, although â€śtime is of the essence.â€ť Under the...

I wish also, bro. But it is not going to happen without conversion and renewal of mind. The Fall has adversely affected men and women, in a most terrible way, such that they love themselves and care little for others. And the love they have for themselves is not that pure love which comes from God.
Oh what a mighty change is wrought in the human heart when the Holy Spirit dwells within! When Jesus takes up residence and begins conforming the convert to the likeness of God.
Praise the Lord for His wonderful grace and mercy, shown to countless souls throughout history, and for each one on these threads who has known the transforming power of the gospel, convicting and converting, regenerating and renewing, that He might be glorified in the salvation of lost and dead sinners.

You see Conservatives & Christians who are unwilling to call Abortion Murder or to Abolish it! As that would affect their bottom line $$$$. May the Lord raise up more Laborers to proclaim hope at the Murder Mills. That their is no Peace without first having peace with Christ removing ones spiritual heart of stone away amen.
Thanks brother. What I would love to hear is a politician say that abortion is murder and should be prosecuted as such.
I remember when Trump was running. He said that the women and doctors having or performing abortions should suffer some type of penalty. He got flack and quickly changed it to only the doctors.
A doctor can murder 20 babies a day, but only has one vote. But there were 20 women.
Yes, the liberal politicians simply ignore scripture. The conservatives pick and choose what to obey and what to not obey. One is on the left side of the bookshelf and the others are on the right side. But, they are both on the same moral bookshelf.
To be fair two of the justices are actually solid constitutionalists, and committed to that. The third justice is a rather weak flawed individual, who went the right way this time, but gave a poor argument. As for the other two â€śconservativesâ€ť, they are turncoats, and that leaves the four dedicated activist liberals, who are committed to their viewpoint, no matter what.
We had hoped that a more conservative-leaning Supreme Court would overturn Roe vs. Wade. Instead, they have overturned justice and righteousness. Not much chance this or any other restriction on abortion will get past the nine Injustices of SCOTUS.
