Georgia Supreme Court Upholds Abortion Restriction

October 25, 2023

The Georgia Supreme Court has upheld the state's law limiting abortion to the first six weeks of pregnancy.

Many people believe that abortion shouldn't be allowed at all, but this decision is a whole lot better than leaning the other direction on this issue.

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, a Republican, signed the Living Infants Fairness and Equality (LIFE) Act in 2019, but the Act needed to wait until the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade to go into effect.

The law had been challenged in Georgia despite the issue of abortion having been returned to the states, and just one justice on the panel asserted that Georgia's state abortion laws were illegal because they were promulgated back when the matter was still a national issue.

According to Breitbart, "the judge called the law 'plainly unconstitutional' because it was passed in 2019, when Roe v. Wade was still in effect."

The judges in this case established a clear majority quickly.

"The holdings of United States Supreme Court cases interpreting the United States Constitution that have since been overruled cannot establish that a law was unconstitutional when enacted," Justice Verda Colvin wrote for the 6-1 majority.
