Georgia Supreme Court reinstates 6-week abortion ban

Thankfully, Georgia’s unborn babies will again be protected by state law.

Recently, Fulton County Judge Robert C. I. McBurney struck down the state’s strict anti-abortion legislation, which bans abortions after the six-week mark, when heartbeats can begin to be detected.

According to Breitbart, the liberal federal judge’s ruling was overturned this week by the Georgia Supreme Court. 

The ruling was widely celebrated by pro-life activists, and equally despised by their pro-abortion counterparts.

The details

McBurney struck down the law after the overturn of Roe and Casey in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.

“This ruling is merely a reinforcement of what ought to be for everyone the uncontroversial notion that, if the judicial branch has declared a constitutional right, legislatures exceed their authority, improperly expand their role, and fundamentally alter the balance struck by the separation of powers when they enact laws they know to be plainly and facially unconstitutional,” the judge wrote at the time.

Clearly, the Georgia Supreme Court didn’t agree.

“The State of Georgia’s Emergency Petition for Supersedeas seeking a stay of the order of the Superior Court of Fulton County in the above-styled action is hereby granted. To the extent the State also seeks an ‘administrative stay,’ that motion is dismissed as moot,” the state’s high court wrote.

Now what?

Some believe that the timing of the court’s decision will have a drastic impact on the upcoming Senate runoff between Herschel Walker and Sen. Ralph Warnock (D-GA).

Some pundits blame Republican leaders for focusing too much on the economy and other non-social issues, as abortion was apparently a motivator for increased voter turnout on the left that zapped the “red wave” expected earlier this month.

Only time will tell how the race is affected, but at the end of the day, the only thing that matters is that unborn children will once again be protected from the murderous, radical abortion pushers.
