Federal Judge Halts Georgia's 'Heartbeat Bill'

The controversial legislation outlaws abortions when a woman is around six weeks pregnant. The bill was signed back in May 2019 and then challenged by Planned Parenthood and the ACLU. It would have then become official on January 1. In his ruling, Judge Steve C. Jones said the bill breaches precedents from two Supreme Court cases. One of them is the landmark Roe v. Wade decision from 1973. This Court, as a district court, is bound by those decisions and, as stated above, is without discretion to overrule or otherwise change this abortion law precedent, Judge Steve C. Jones, via ruling. A spokesperson for Georgia Governor Brian Kemp said they are analyzing the judge's ruling. We are currently reviewing Judge Jones’ decision. Despite today’s outcome, we remain confident in our position, Spokeswoman Candice Broce, via 'Variety'. The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals would hear the case if Georgia were to fight the decision.
