Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp signed a fetal heartbeat bill into law last week. The bill protects unborn human life once a heartbeat is detected. Six states now have fetal heartbeat laws including Iowa, Ohio, North Dakota, Kentucky and Mississippi. Iowa just cut Planned Parenthood funding out of the budget. And New York City witnessed it's largest pro-life event in history. Some 20,000 people filled Times Square for an event called “Alive from New York.” The intent was to rally against New York's abortion law that allows perfectly healthy babies to be aborted up until the ninth month of pregnancy for any reason. Speakers advocated for the dignity of the unborn and are working to turn public opinion in their favor.  By all indications, the pro-life movement appears to be alive and well across the country.
