Tough day for Georgia's most innocent residents.

Georgia formerly had an abortion ban that prohibited abortions after six-weeks of pregnancy. Fulton County Court blocked the ban to ensure that abortions can still take place.

Judge Robert McBurney wrote (in his 15-page ruling) that two sections of the previous ban were “plainly unconstitutional when drafted,” and added “At that time — the spring of 2019 — everywhere in America, including Georgia, it was unequivocally unconstitutional for governments — federal, state, or local — to ban abortions before viability … Such bans were banned. [The statute] did not become the law of Georgia when it was enacted and it is not the law of Georgia now.”

How do you say I want more baby deaths without saying I want more baby deaths?

Supposedly, McBurney didn’t think that the law could be enacted due to the fact that the state drafted the ban before Roe was overturned in June. Two main complaints he posed were that under the bill, doctors could be charged with a felony for killing innocent children and doctors had a requirement to report illegal abortions to the state’s Department of Public Health.

Both seem pretty rational to me but McBurney obviously disagreed.

Previously the bill, which was signed into action by GA Gov. Brian Kemp (R) in 2019 and enacted after Roe’s demise,  prohibited people from killing their children once a heartbeat was detected. Critics argued that the bill was unfair as many women don’t know they’re pregnant until after six weeks. Sure,  even if they don’t know they're pregnant, stopping the beating heart of an innocent human being is morally wrong. 

Numerous pro-life groups and individuals were upset at the news. 

A spokesperson for Kemp declared, “the personal beliefs of a judge over the will of the legislature and people of Georgia. The state has already filed a notice of appeal, and we will continue to fight for the lives of Georgia’s unborn children.”

Of course, pro-death activists and the industry they support were happy. 

It’s sad to see so many people praise an open opportunity to end the life of innocent children but in Georgia right now, that’s what’s happening.

I suppose all we can do now is pray.
