Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards has signed the state’s fetal heartbeat abortion ban into law.
The ban prohibits any abortions after a fetal heartbeat was detected. There were no exceptions included for victims of rape or incest.
The bill may face several legal challenges, just as other similar abortion ban laws have.
