Heartbeat Bill Blocked In Atlanta

On Tuesday an Atlanta Federal Judge blocked Georgia's controversial abortion law, the Heartbeat Bill, proposed earlier this year Governor by Brian Kemp. Judge Steven C. Jones kept the new anti-abortion law from taking effect January 1, 2020 in the State of Georgia - The law states that there will be no abortions after about six weeks, which is when a fetal heartbeat is usually first detected. Judge Jones gave a statement, "Under no circumstances whatsoever may a State prohibit or ban abortions at any point prior to viability, no matter what interests the State asserts to support it. What's next? The bill will remain in a holding pattern until court challenges to the new law make their way through the nation's judicial system. Brian Kemp did not make a statement after the ruling on Tuesday.
