Human Life: Supporter hopes abortion ban linked to fetal heartbeat will change minds

Email

FARGO -- Young women have told Bette Grande that they didn't go through with an abortion because they saw an ultrasound of their unborn child.

She was the sponsor of a law four years ago requiring that ultrasound images be available for women considering an abortion.

Now she's hoping a law banning abortions in North Dakota when a fetal heartbeat can be detected -- as early as six weeks -- can prevent the procedures, regardless of how a promised legal challenge ends.
