Georgia’s ‘Heartbeat Bill’

Abortion is one of the most polarising issues in the United States, and a controversial new law in the state of Georgia has placed it right back in the spotlight. The so-called 'heartbeat bill' bans abortions after a doctor can detect a foetal heartbeat. That can be as early as six weeks, and is often before women even know they're pregnant. The legislation is likely to face a long legal challenge. Several pro-abortion activists say it violates the Supreme Court's historic Roe v Wade decision. But America's top court now leans to the right. And with several states enacting restrictive abortion laws, is that landmark ruling on track to be overturned?
