Susan Berry, PhD, The Star News Network

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) signed into law Thursday night a bill that bans abortions in his

state after six weeks, the stage of pregnancy when a fetal heartbeat is generally detected. The new law also provides $25 million in funds for pro-life pregnancy centers throughout the state to assist women during and after pregnancy. Senate Bill 300, called the Heartbeat Protection Act, passed the state House Thursday by a vote of 70-40. The state Senate passed the legislation last week.
