Nancy Mace On DeSantis Signing Heartbeat Bill Into Law To Protect Unborn Babies: ‘Not Compassionate’

Republican Rep. Nancy Mace Criticizes Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for Signing Heartbeat Bill

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis recently signed a heartbeat bill into law that protects the lives of unborn babies from the moment a heartbeat is detected. While DeSantis praised the bill for expanding pro-life protections and providing resources for young mothers and families, Republican Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) criticized the signing, claiming it happened “in the dead of night” and puts women who are victims of rape and incest in a difficult position.

Mace’s Criticism

Mace, who is a victim of rape herself, expressed concern about the requirements the bill has for rape victims and called for more care, concern, and compassion for women who have been raped. She also believes that the bill puts DeSantis in a difficult position for a general election and could harm his future political aspirations.

Conservative Response

While some conservatives have expressed hesitation about DeSantis signing such an aggressive piece of pro-life legislation into law, others have pointed out that other Republican governors who have signed similar pieces of legislation were not harmed politically afterward. Former CNN reporter Gabby Orr and popular Twitter account AG Conservative both cited examples of Republican governors who won elections after signing heartbeat bills into law.


Abortion politics are complicated and often vary by area, but the places where the GOP really got punished on this issue are where candidates opposed exceptions or supported outright bans, not 1st trimester lines with exceptions. It remains to be seen how DeSantis’ signing of the heartbeat bill will affect his political future, but it is clear that the issue of abortion will continue to be a contentious one in American politics.
