Senate Bill 1309 would update the fetal heartbeat bill to authorize the father, aunt, uncle, grandparent or a sibling of an aborted fetus to file a civil lawsuit against the doctor. 

It could be filed at anytime up to four years after the abortion and get a minimum $20,00 in damages plus attorney fees.
