Georgia isn’t just known for its peaches. Georgia’s baby saving strategies are also well-known.
A federal 11th Circut Court of Appeals ruled that a law that was blocked previously could be allowed to continue and Georgia would become the next state to prohibit abortions.
Although the ban was originally expected to be in effect by this time next summer, it got extended. We are grateful to God for this!
A three-judge panel ruled that abortion was not allowed after Roe v. Wade was overturned in June. U.S. District Court Judge Steve Jones indicted Georgia’s heartbeat law as invalid, and it now has effect.
Georgia law makes it illegal to abort a baby if there is a sign that the heartbeat has stopped. This happens approximately six weeks into the pregnancy.
The court “also rejected arguments that a ‘personhood’ provision in the law is unconstitutionally vague. The provision grants personhood to a fetus, giving it the same legal rights as people have after birth,” as NewsMaxpointed out.
The law indicates that a baby can be claimed as a dependent for state income taxes, that moms can file for child support and that babies will be counted toward Georgia’s total population.
An Atlanta newspaper explained why Georgia’s heartbeat law is unique:
Georgia’s new law is different from other states’ “heartbeat” statutes because it includes so-called personhood provisions, where rights are extended to an embryo once fetal cardiac activity can be detected. Parents would be able to claim a fetus, once a heartbeat is detected, on their state income taxes as a dependent, and the measure would also require state officials to count an unborn child toward Georgia’s population. Once cardiac activity has been detected, mothers can file for child support.
Only cases of incest, rape or situations where the child is not able to live after birth are allowed by law. In these cases, a police report will be required to prevent any false allegations of rape and incest.
Planned Parenthood, a racist and baby-killing money-whored organization, promised to keep its brutal work in GA.
We’re here with you, Georgia. We will make every effort to provide the best possible care for all GA patients.

The Planned Parenthood Action account called the news “crushing.”
Crushing news: Georgia’s 6-week ban will go into effect later this summer, banning abortion before many people even know they’re pregnant & forcing people to travel hundreds of miles for care.
Accessing an abortion shouldn’t be difficult in your home state. https://t.co/knq2ilExrC

The baby’s head won’t get crushed because they are already dismembered inside the womb.
Georgia Rep. Betsy Holland is “mad as hell” about Georgia’s prolife laws.
Gov Kemp claimed that HB481 is the US’s strictest abortion law. This was supported by a large majority of Republicans. AG Carr worked to pass this law. Georgia has lost the right to reproductive freedom for women.
Are you mad as hell? As am I. Take that energy to the ballot box this Nov https://t.co/Zes10qccZP

It’s honestly embarrassing that people are throwing tantrums because it’s no longer easy to kill babies. Georgia should be commended for its life affirming legislation.
