Heartbeat Initiative

2020 Washington State Ballot Initiative 1698

Washington State's Pro-Life Heartbeat Initiative 1698

Every living human being has a right to life, including unborn human beings. We know that life ends when the heart permanently ceases to function conversely life has begun when the heart begins to function. Therefore unborn human beings have a right to life when their heart beats!

Why are we doing what we are doing... because your life matters!

Washington State's current law doesn't have a "timeline" for abortion. The Abortion Protection Act states:

RCW 9.02.110


Right to have and provide.

The state may not deny or interfere with a woman's right to choose to have an abortion prior to viability of the fetus, or to protect her life or health.

A physician may terminate and a health care provider may assist a physician in terminating a pregnancy as permitted by this section.

The law defined viability of life as not requiring any medical treatment or attention outside of the womb.

Therefore a baby has no protection under the law as currently exists.
