The Louisiana "heartbeat" bill (SB 184) is a fraud. Check out the penalty:
"[The doctor] shall be fined not more than one thousand dollars per incidence or occurrence, or imprisoned for not more than two years, or both."
That's a low penalty for taking another person's life. The fine is "not more than one thousand dollars," meaning the judge has the option to set the amount anywhere from $.01 to $1,000. Prison time is not required, and is limited to 0-2 years.
Plus, there's no penalty against the parents for hiring the doctor to kill their child.
Pro-lifers have been fooled, again.
