Georgia House Approves 'Heartbeat' Abortion Bill

Georgia's General Assembly passed the so-called "heartbeat" abortion bill Friday.

It now heads to the Governor's desk, where he is expected to sign it.

The House voted 92-78 to move forward with the  Living Infants Fairness and Equality Act .

The measure would ban abortions as early as six weeks into a pregnancy when a fetal heartbeat is detected.

However, many women are unaware that they are pregnant during that time.

Georgia Gov.  Brian Kemp tweeted  after the House vote, "The legislature's bold action reaffirms our priorities and who we are as a state.

I thank these lawmakers for their leadership and applaud their undeniable courage." Multiple organizations have criticized the bill including the ACLU which promised to take legal action to block the measure if it is signed into law by Kemp.

The  ACLU said in a statement , that the bill "would ban safe, legal abortion and criminalize the most intimate decision women and couples make." If the bill is signed it will take effect on Jan.

1, 2020.  Additional reporting from  Newsy affiliate CNN .
