Georgia high court reinstates ban on abortions after 6 weeks

Source: AP

ATLANTA (AP) ó The Georgia Supreme Court Wednesday reinstated the stateís ban on abortions after roughly six weeks of pregnancy.

In a one-page order, the high court put a lower court ruling overturning the ban on hold while it considers an appeal. Abortion providers who had resumed performing the procedure past six weeks after the lower court ruling will again have to stop.

The order said seven of the nine justices had agreed to the decision. It said one was disqualified and another did not participate.

Fulton County Superior Court Judge Robert McBurney ruled on November 15 that the stateís abortion ban was invalid because when it was signed into law in 2019, U.S. Supreme Court precedent under Roe. v. Wade and another ruling allowed abortion well past six weeks.

2. We need a public referendum on this.

This issue should be important to everyone. But too many voters are happy to ignore the consequences in favor of some other policy issue that the Rs have a stranglehold on so they can carry thr majority. We need a state referendum.

6. In a way... it's good news

The ruling itself isnít very surprising given the makeup of the court and the fact that the lower courtís ruling really didnít make any sense.

But releasing it now should only help with the runoff
