(KYMA, KECY/CNN) - Pregnant mothers in Georgia can now get tax credits for unborn children.
It's a part of the state's heart-beat abortion law - whose main purpose is to limit when women can get the procedure.
However, the law also recognizes a fetus as a life as soon as a heart-beat is detected.
That means mothers can claim a personal exemption of 3-thousand dollars for each unborn child.
Georgia's department of revenue confirmed those exemptions will be honored on 20-22 tax returns.
