Reader supports state fetal heartbeat bill

To the Editor:
Quick! What has a human heartbeat? Sure, you want to say a live human, and yes you would be correct. But millions have called it a choice and aborted it. It’s a child not a choice. The state fetal heartbeat bill should be approved. Thanks to the Elizabethton Star for reporting the good news that Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee and top Republican lawmakers back the heartbeat abortion ban. If this passes Tennessee will be a leader in protecting the life of the unborn. New York is the leader in killing the unborn as they just passed a Reproductive Health Act that allows abortion all nine months. Killing a baby isn’t health care. Virginia is considering a similar law. Dr. John McTernan said, New York state is doomed for passing this evil law days before the deadly Polar Vortex hit with record cold temperatures. I believe the late Pastor David Wilkerson is correct when he said God told him one day New York would burn with 1000 fires.
Tennessee State Rep. Micah Van Huss, Republican representing Jonesborough, is pushing passage of legislation to make it a criminal offense to abort a baby when a heartbeat is detected. The “Heartbeat Bill” also requires all health professionals to perform ultrasounds to look for a heartbeat and inform the mother whether a heartbeat is detected. The heartbeat can be detected as early as six weeks into a woman’s pregnancy. This would stop most abortions. If a federal judge declares the bill unconstitutional it should be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court. It would be logical for the government to at least apply the same legal standard to abortion as is used in determining whether a person is dead. Is there a heartbeat? said Charisma News reports on a 2017 poll from the Barna Group which showed strong support (69 percent) for a pro-life federal law prohibiting abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected. “The heartbeat is the medical measurement of life.” For liberals and the media to deny it, is to deny science!
The media and liberals already deny science in supporting transgenderism and in saying anyone can change their gender. Dr. Paul McHugh said sex change is biologically impossible. No one can change the biological fact that every single cell in your entire body is branded XX or XY. No matter how you feel or how much surgery you have or how many hormones you take, your XX or XY chromosomes are a scientific fact that can’t be changed!
