They Are Just Like Us

Georgia passed a Heartbeat bill protecting unborn babies once a heartbeat is detected.  It also has a personhood provision, giving unborn babies the same rights as born children.  As a result, the Georgia Department of Revenue determined parents can now claim their unborn child on tax returns, meaning their parents pocket  $3,000 per unborn child.  It doesn’t end there.  State officials are required to count unborn children toward Georgia’s population.  It gets even better.  Mothers can file for child support for their unborn babies with a detectible heartbeat.  Of course, we wish it was from the moment of fertilization, but this is a huge step forward in not only saving babies’ lives, but this ingrains into the minds of Georgians that unborn babies are just like you and me.
