Georgia’s Governor Signs ‘Fetal Heartbeat’ Abortion Law

Reproductive Health is Abortion Rights

From the article:

Lawmakers approved the bill in March and the law is set to take effect Jan. 1, 2020. It significantly decreases the period of time for a woman to have an abortion in the state, currently set at 20 weeks.

Right now, this is happening all over because they want to force it to go to court to attempt to get this as the de facto rule for abortion set as a precedent.

Let’s also be clear, that a 6 week abortion ruling would effectively outlaw abortion in total. If, and it’s a big if, a woman has a four week cycle, she could not know she’s pregnant until after the 6 weeks is past. The problem is if you conceive at the beginning of your cycle, you go the four weeks, and then are a week or two late? You are out of time.

Not every woman is remotely regular in her cycles, and even if you are? It’s not uncommon to be late a week or so.

This is a strategy to ban abortion. It will not effect rich people, as they will fly wherever it takes to get one, but it will effect those people that don’t have the means.
