Federal Court Let’s Georgia’s Fetal Heartbeat Law Take Effect

This judge’s ruling surely won’t stop the abortion death merchants, especially those who are really enthused to make sure black women abort their babies at a percentage well above any other race. Hey, maybe the death merchants, such as Stacy Abrams, can explain what contraception does

Federal appeals court allows Georgia abortion law to take effect immediately

A federal appeals court overturned a lower court ruling and allowed Georgia’s restrictive 2019 abortion law to take effect immediately Wednesday. The decision was expected after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled last month that there is no constitutional right to an abortion.

The law, which had been barred from taking effect, bans most abortions once a “detectable human heartbeat” is present. Cardiac activity can be detected by ultrasound in cells within an embryo that will eventually become the heart as early as six weeks into a pregnancy, before many pregnancies are detected.

The Georgia law includes exceptions for rape and incest, as long as a police report is filed. It also allows for later abortions when the mother’s life is at risk or a serious medical condition renders a fetus unviable.

A three-judge panel of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said that a U.S. Supreme Court ruling in a Mississippi case that overturned Roe v. Wade allows the law to take effect. Circuit Court Chief Judge William Pryor wrote that the ruling in that case “makes clear no right to abortion exists under the Constitution, so Georgia may prohibit them.”

The court further ruled that the law could take effect immediately. The ruling further enjoined that expanding the term “natural person” to an unborn baby was perfectly OK within Georgia law, which could have interesting applications for challenges to similar laws in other states

Andrea Young, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Georgia, which sued to challenge the law on behalf of Georgia abortion providers and an advocacy group, said the organization “will continue to fight for abortion rights for the women of Georgia with all of the tools at our disposal.”

Will they attempt to bring this to the Supreme Court? They’ll probably lose, if the Court even decides to take the case. Their only recourse is to attempt to win at the ballot box, both for the Senate and House of the Georgia general assembly and the governor’s mansion. This makes liberals very unhappy, because they expect things to be easy and everyone to simply comply.

The fight over abortion will be on the ballot this November in at least 5 states

(if trouble with paywall, try this)

The battle over the access to abortion will continue during this year’s midterm elections after the Supreme Court overturned the landmark Roe v. Wade decision last month. At least five states – California, Kansas, Kentucky, Montana and Vermont – will include ballot proposals on changing the state’s constitution over abortion rights.

And several other states are either gearing up to include an abortion initiative in 2023 or beyond.

In California and Vermont, voters will decide to enshrine access to abortion, while in Kentucky and Kansas, voters will decide against protecting access to abortion in the states’ charters.

In places like Arizona, a ballot measure to protect abortion access failed to meet the requirements for the November election. But activists in Michigan and Colorado are attempting to get an initiative included in the November election.

Obviously, California’s initiative has a darned good chance of succeeding. Vermont is a little closer in enshrining abortion. Kansas’ is also polling closely. In Montana

The Medical Care Requirements for Born-Alive Infants Measure will be on the ballot this November in Montana. The measure states that infants born alive at any stage are “legal persons” and are entitled to the protections of the law.

It also requires infants born after a cesarean section or an attempted abortion receive medical care.

While around 56% of those in Montana say they support abortion in theory, how will they vote in practice? If the Montana general assembly is smart, they’d pass a law similar to Mississippi, stopping abortions after 15 weeks.

    Forced-birther Teach: they’d pass a law similar to Mississippi, stopping abortions after 15 weeks

    92% of therapeutic abortions are conducted by 13 weeks gestation. A 15 week limit will prevent about 5% of all abortions.

    Medication abortions (mifepristone and misoprostol) are only advised for no later 10 weeks gestation.

    Is forced-birther Teach advocating bans on abortion post 15 weeks except for the life of the mother?

    • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

      At what point does the pre natal Nazi Dowd suggest a cut off for abortions? It keeps marking weeks, days, months that all those bad bad people it quotes supposedly use to try and curb baby murder but Dowd has not yet told us what its cut off point is for abortion. What is it hiding.

      At what point does an unborn baby become a human Dowd? At what point is it illegal to murder him/her? Do you have an answer?


      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        LGB is responsible for at least 2 abortions, and no telling how many more in LGBs lifetime of sperm-spewing irresponsible behaviors, making it the expert on abortion. It should tell us. It blames girls for abortion ignoring its own “contributions”.

        Is it still knocking up girls or has it become more responsible, finally?

    Good thing the democratic party publishes so much so Jeff always has something to cut-paste.

      Good thing the Daily Stormer publishes so much scheisse so Professor Porter always has something to ejaculate.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Say perfesser. Seriously. What do you challenge?

      That over 90% of abortions are performed inside 13 weeks?

      That medication abortions (mifepristone and misoprostol) are only advised for no later than 10 weeks gestation?

      Or are you just trolling? Again. Perhaps you just don’t know what you’re arguing about.
