NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WJHL) – Tennessee lawmakers are set to take another look at the controversial heartbeat bill in a summer study.
The bill bans abortions as soon as a heartbeat is detected, which could come as early as six weeks into pregnancy.
The two-day summer study will focus on what aspects Tennessee might consider for the legislation.
The Senate Judiciary Committee will also hear supporting testimony.
Without any recommendation of the re-written bill, it is unlikely the bill will go into effect for the 2020 legislative session.
