LET'S GO: Georgia Supreme Court reinstates heartbeat abortion ban ๐Ÿ™Œ

After a lower court struck down Georgia's heartbeat bill which would prevent abortions at the six-week mark, roughly when a baby's heartbeat can be detected, the Supreme Court of the state of Georgia has reinstated the ban.

From woke PBS:

The Georgia Supreme Court Wednesday reinstated the state's ban on abortions after roughly six weeks of pregnancy.

In a one-page order, the high court put a lower court ruling overturning the ban on hold while it considers an appeal. Abortion providers who had resumed performing the procedure past six weeks after the lower court ruling will again have to stop.

The order said seven of the nine justices had agreed to the decision. It said one was disqualified and another did not participate.

This is VERY good news as doctors immediately began offering the murderous procedure again and now, under this new ruling, these babies will now be saved.

Fulton County Superior Court Judge Robert McBurney ruled on November 15 that the state's abortion ban was invalid because when it was signed into law in 2019, U.S. Supreme Court precedent under Roe. v. Wade and another ruling allowed abortion well past six weeks.

The decision immediately prohibited enforcement of the abortion ban statewide. Abortion providers had resumed performing the procedure past six weeks, though some said they were proceeding cautiously over concerns the ban could be quickly reinstated.

The state attorney general's office appealed the ruling to the state Supreme Court. It also asked the high court for an order putting the decision on hold while the appeal was pending.

Georgia's ban took effect in July, after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. It prohibited most abortions once a "detectable human heartbeat" was present.

Thank goodness the damage from the lower court judge is being undone.

A victory for life.
