U.S. Supreme Court Declines to Hear Appeal of Ruling Striking Down Fetal Heartbeat Bill |  

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Supreme Court has declined to hear an appeal of a ruling that struck down a North Dakota law that banned abortions when a heartbeat is detected, allowing the lower court decision to stand.As previously reported, lawmakers in the state passed HB 1456 in March 2013, which was later signed by Governor Jack Dalrymple. It would require any abortionist in the state to check for a fetal heartbeat, which some note can be detected by medical equipment as early as 12 weeks. However, fetal development experts state that an infant’s heart begins beating just 20-25 days after conception
