Georgia GOP Candidates Push Total Abortion Bans – Even in Cases of Rape, Incest, or Danger to Mother’s Life

May 5, 2022

Georgia GOP candidates in multiple statewide races stand ready to not only restrict abortion if elected, but to enact extreme total bans that are wildly out of step with what Georgians want. While an overwhelming majority of Georgians support abortion rights, Republican candidates say if Roe v. Wade is overturned, they’ll work to ban all abortion – even in cases of rape, incest, or danger to the mother’s life. 

“In violation of half a century of precedent and against the will of a vast majority of Georgians, Republicans running for office at all levels stand ready to ban abortion entirely – even in cases of rape, incest, or threat to the mother’s life. This dangerous position is deadly and too extreme for Georgia, a state that already has the second-highest maternal mortality rate,” said Rebecca Galanti, spokesperson for the Democratic Party of Georgia.
