A new Hill/HarrisX survey reveals that a majority of Americans support banning abortion after a fetal heartbeat can be detected, much to the consternation of those now determined to defeat Georgia’s latest legislative victory to protect innocent life. According to the poll, 55% of voters believe fetal heartbeat bills or other six-week abortion ban measures are either “just right” or do not go far enough. Alternately, 45% of those polled call such measures “too restrictive.” When split by age groups, younger voters were revealed as more likely to support fetal heartbeat protections. This comes as a massive blow to the pro-abort Left, who are clearly losing the culture war on abortion.

Among all the hullabaloo over the state of Alabama’s new, strict pro-life law, it is almost easy to forget that the hot-button abortion topic prior to this week was actually Georgia’s slightly less strict pro-life law which would ban all abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected (typically around six weeks). The Daily Wire previously explained the Georgia legislation, which has since been signed into law by Republican Gov. Brian Kemp:
H.B. 481 states that the “full value of a child begins when a heartbeat exists” and requires “physicians performing abortions to determine the existence of a detectable human heartbeat before performing an abortion,” stating, “it shall be the policy of the State of Georgia to recognize unborn children as natural persons,” and asserting “unless otherwise provided by law, any natural person, including an unborn child with a detectable human heartbeat, shall be included in population based determinations.”
