Kentucky Senate passes bill protecting babies after detectable heartbeat

February 16, 2019

By a vote of 31 to 6, the Kentucky Senate voted yesterday to pass SB9, known as a “heartbeat bill.” The bill will now go on to the Kentucky House. If it passes and is signed into law, it will restrict abortion once a preborn child’s heartbeat is detected. Opponents of the bill stated that this would be at approximately five or six weeks gestation, while supporters of the bill claim, according to Wave 3 News, that “the bill specifies the use of an external ultrasound, which would typically be able to identify a heartbeat at around ten weeks.”

Planned Parenthood and the ACLU are against the bill, and the local news outlet noted that an ACLU representative “said the bill would see a legal challenge from the group as soon as it passes.”

Earlier this week, the Mississippi House and Senate both passed heartbeat bills, and other states — Ohio, Florida, South Carolina, and Tennessee — are reportedly considering similar legislation, which is quite the contrast to states like New York (which already passed an extreme bill allowing abortion up to birth), Virginia (which failed to pass its extreme abortion bill that would also allow abortion to birth), Vermont, and Rhode Island (both of which are attempting to further cement extreme late-term abortion in law as well).

A preborn child at six weeks gestation already has detectable brain waves and has had a heartbeat since between days 16 and 21 after fertilization. By six to seven weeks, that same heart has four chambers. Rapid development occurs in the first trimester, and though the preborn child is small, he or she has recognizable body parts. As stated previously by Live Action News, by nine to ten weeks, “[a] girl now has eggs in her ovaries, and a baby at this stage can suck his thumb, move his tongue, sigh, stretch, move his head, and open his mouth. According to [The Endowment for Human Development], ‘right- and left-handedness emerges.’”

The Good News


Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. You don’t have to do anything but believe by faith that God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead 3 days later.




  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
