State Court Temporarily Blocks Georgia Abortion Ban

Gavel & scalesACLU of Georgia press release: STATE COURT TEMPORARILY HALTS GEORGIA ABORTION BAN:

The Superior Court of Fulton County last Friday temporarily suspended a Georgia law banning pre-viability abortions. The law would have criminalized virtually all abortions starting at 20 weeks of pregnancy, with only an extremely narrow exception for the woman's health.

The American Civil Liberties Union and the ACLU of Georgia challenged the law on behalf of three Georgia obstetrician-gynecologists whose patients include women in need of this essential medical care. . . .
