Georgia Urges Federal Judge to Dismiss Lawsuit, Heartbeat Bill, Pro-Life, Save The Tiny Humans, Pregnant Woman, Unborn Baby, Heartbeat Bill
Georgia made a compelling argument when the state asked a federal judge not to block the heartbeat bill that's set to take effect Jan. 1. 

Attorneys representing the state argued in court Monday that the bill "advances Georgia's unique and substantial constitutional interest in protecting unborn human lives, in addition to its interests in protecting maternal health, encouraging childbirth, and safe safeguarding the integrity of the medical profession." They went on to defend the law stating that it is indeed "constitutional and justified."

What You Need to Know

If the bill passes, pregnant women would be unable to obtain an abortion once a heartbeat can be detected (generally around 6 weeks).

The law does contain exceptions. A woman would still be allowed to receive an abortion in the case of rape or incest if a police report was previously filed.  Exceptions would also be available for women that have severe medical complications that put their life at risk and unborn babies who are unable to survive after birth.

Abortion on The Rise

The bill originated after Georgia's abortion rate climbed in 2018. There was over 1,000 more abortions performed than the year prior (an approximate 4% increase).

ACLU Suing State of Georgia

The American Civil Liberties Union of Georgia is suing the state over what they consider an anti-abortion law, and they asked Steve C. Jones, a U.S. District judge to stop the bill. They stated "politicians should not be second-guessing women's health care decisions." The ACLU also argued that women are protected by the Roe v Wade Supreme Court ruling to access abortion services until they are 24 weeks pregnant.

The State's Not Going Down Easy

The lawyers representing the state do not agree with the ACLU. They argued that the "defendants deny all allegations in the complaint that killing a living unborn child constitutes 'medical care' or health care.'"

Florida Lawmakers Pass 15 Week Abortion Ban

Abortions after 15 weeks may soon outlawed in the state of Florida. The news comes on Thursday night after the Florida Senate passed a monumental bill in a 23-15 party-line vote.  The bill is now headed to the desk of Governor Ron DeSantis who is expected to sign the bill into law. His spokesperson Christina Pushaw is on record saying “Governor DeSantis is pro-life and has voiced support for the concepts in this bill."  Starting July 1, doctors in the state will be prohibited from performing abortions after the 15 week mark if the governor decides to endorse this decision.   While the bill aims to protect preborn children, there are still some exceptions. These include "irreversible physical impairment" or death to the mother as well as fatal abnormality.  The abortion bill is often perceived as reasonable although  rape, incest and trafficking are not current exceptions. Lawmakers believe that 15 weeks is enough time to make a decision before the baby reaches later stag

Who's Deadlier? Planned Parenthood or COVID-19

  It's Closer than You Think Contrary to what you might expect, the results are actually much closer than what you would like to believe.  According to the CDC , in 2020 there were 376,098 COVID-19 related deaths in the United States. Planned Parenthood disclosed 345,672 abortion services on to their  latest annual report . That doesn't even include the additional 593,586 emergency contraception kits.  Govenment Funded Deaths Planned Parenthood revealed that government funding was their number one source of revenue on their   2018-2019 annual report . In fact, they received 616.8 million dollars from government health services reimbursements and grants.  Exploiting Women Planned Parenthood takes advantage of women. One would think that an organization with such a name would help women plan their parenthood, but this could not be further from the truth.  Numbers simply don't lie. During the course of an entire year, the organization  reported  only 9,798 prenatal services an
