Fallin Signs “Heartbeat” Bill Into Law

Robin Marty

The weaker heartbeat requirement will force those who provide abortions to offer to let women listen to the heartbeat prior to termination.

Oklahoma will be another state to ask women to listen to the sound of an embryo or fetus’s heartbeat prior to terminating a pregnancy thanks to the “Heartbeat Informed Consent Act,” which was signed into law by Governor Mary Fallin.

However, unlike other heartbeat bills, such as the one in Louisiana, women will not be required to listen to the sound, but be asked if they want to do so.

Unless challenged, the bill will go into effect on November 1, 2012.
