The Science Is Clear: At 22 Days, A Baby’s Heart Begins To Beat

Susan Michelle-Hanson

Just 22 days after conception a baby’s heart is beating in utero. In fact, recent reports show it might actually occur as early as 16 days. This scientific reality is the basis of the recent Heartbeat Bill, which is holding a hearing November 1, 2017, before the congressional Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice, a part of the House Judiciary Committee.

As Live Action has reported, the Heartbeat Protection Act of 2017, dubbed, the “Heartbeat Bill” (HR 490) would ban abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detected, usually at about six weeks’ gestation. The logic of this bill is simple: if a person’s heart stops, he is declared dead; therefore, when a person’s heart begins to beat, there can no longer be a question he is alive, even for those who don’t believe life begins at conception. A heartbeat is a universal, scientific, non-controversial sign of life. An abortion in the first trimester is described by former abortionist Dr. Anthony Levation in the video below:
