BATON ROUGE, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – A bill that makes abortions in Louisiana illegal if a fetal heartbeat is detected, was approved Tuesday by a Louisiana State Senate Committee.

The bill from State Senator John Milkovich now heads to the full Senate for consideration. 

The bill would only become law if a federal appeals court upholds a similar law in Mississippi.
