Fetus Testifies in Court

     A 9week old fetus is being called as an unconventional legislative witness at a hearing in Ohio debating a proposed bill that would make abortion illegal as soon as a fetus' heartbeat can be detected. The Faith2Action group, proponents of the bill, apparently aims to use proof of the unborn child's beating heart from a projected ultrasound to convince lawmakers that the "Heartbeat Bill" is constitutional. 

     Mike Gonidakis, executive director of the "Ohio Right to Life" stated that, "despite noble aspirations, there is no scenario under which the heartbeat legislation will be upheld by any court and therefore no lives will be saved by passage of this bill." Ohio's Right to life group as well as other pro-life advocates feel the same way, because it would make the legal deadline for abortions before a women might know she's pregnant, as the first heartbeat usually occurs 18 days after conception.

     The bill most likely won't pass but that hasn't stopped Faith2Action from going all out with this fetus testimony. Daily Intel's Nitasha Tiku says that Faith2Action's affected by the Heartbeat Bill, "If that's the case, aren't there sentient beings, like, say, the people that will have to raise it for the next eighteen years that could use actual words to testify?" she asked. Alex Balk as the Awl simply comments that "the witness will be the smartest thing in the room." I lol'd.
