Saccone introduces bill to ban abortion after heartbeat detected, shaving 18 weeks off current law

Six months after floating a co-sponsor memo seeking support for a so-called heartbeat bill — which bans abortion if a doctor can detect a heartbeat from a fetus — Rep. Rick Saccone (R-Allegheny) has officially introduced the legislation.

“I want to save baby lives,” Saccone said Wednesday. “I’m unashamedly pro-life. When the heartbeat is detected, there’s a baby in there.”
