Even though the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld Georgia’s Heartbeat Bill.
The new challenge was filed in Fulton County Superior Court with Judge Robert McBurney. Their intent is for the State court system to invent a right to abortion under the Georgia Constitution since the Federal courts have affirmed there is NO right to abortion under the U.S. Constitution.
The Court has scheduled an emergency hearing to block our Heartbeat Bill TODAY at 4pm. You can attend in person (Courtroom 8-D) or watch the hearing with us live today via zoom:

While we expect the State Courts to ultimately uphold the Heartbeat Bill, we can’t take this attack lightly. Just in 2019, the Kansas Supreme Court created a right to abortion under their State Constitution. That decision led to every pro-life law in the state being blocked until the state changes its Constitution.
It is imperative that pro-life Georgians stay engaged on this issue as the next front in the war on life begins today.
Please join us in praying ahead of the hearing, specifically for Judge McBurney to hear the arguments with discernment; for the pro-life attorneys to articulate our law with wisdom; and maybe even for the pro-abortion attorneys to get a flat tire on the way to the Courthouse. We’ll leave that between you and the Lord.
Georgians are already seeing the positive effects of the Heartbeat Bill. From babies being saved as abortion clinics shut down to pregnant women being eligible for child support and tax exemptions – -the Heartbeat Bill is good for Georgia!
Thank you for continuing to pray with us, support us, and stand with us on the frontline of this fight for life!
Together for life.
