“Since taking office in 2019, our family has committed to serving Georgia in a way that cherishes and values each and every human being, and today’s decision by the 11th Circuit affirms our promise to protect life at all stages,” [Georgeduh Gubnor Brian Kemp] said.
And with that, Georgeduh’s ban on abortions after 6 weeks —and many people don’t know that they are pregnant at 6 weeks— new law kicked in yesterday.
The 11th US Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday immediately stayed a federal district court’s order that had blocked the abortion law from going into effect.
“It is the constitutional duty of the Georgia Attorney General to defend the laws of our state. Today, our arguments have prevailed, meaning the Eleventh Circuit has allowed Georgia’s LIFE Act to take effect immediately,” Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr, a Republican, said in a statement.
The law helpfully does have an exception for rape or incest before 20 weeks, but with the catch that an official police report must be on file.
Stock-up on contraception, Georgian Scissorheads, and that includes men: you are part of this disaster, take responsibility too. In the meanwhile, if you need an abortion get outta state while you still can.
