Georgia governor signs heartbeat abortion ban

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Georgia's Republican governor on Tuesday signed a bill outlawing abortion if a doctor can detect a fetal heartbeat, part of a concerted effort by conservatives to restrict abortion rights in states across the country.

Governor Brian Kemp praised the bill when it passed the state legislature in March.

He's the fourth governor to sign such a law since mid-March.

Anti-abortion campaigners have intensified their efforts since Donald Trump was elected president and appointed two conservative justices to the U.S. Supreme Court, hopeful they can convince the right-leaning court to re-examine the landmark case Roe v.

Wade that established a woman's right to an abortion in 1973.

Kentucky, Mississippi and Ohio have passed heartbeat laws recently, and Iowa passed one last year.

Courts have blocked the Iowa and Kentucky laws, and the others face legal challenges.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Georgia has vowed to sue to stop this law.
