“Georgia’s abortion laws could get even stricter next year, depending on who wins the governor’s race”
After Gov. Brian Kemp’s extreme, six-week abortion ban took effect and he’s refused to rule out further restrictions, new reporting from FiveThirtyEight is highlighting just how important the Georgia governor’s race will be when it comes to protecting women’s reproductive freedom.
The story notes that the only thing standing in the way of a complete abortion ban in Georgia is the governor’s veto, especially after Kemp has indicated his goal of outlawing abortion even in the cases of rape and incest. Kemp has also signaled his openness to restrict reproductive care even more, with recent comments made by Kemp signaling his openness to banning contraception if re-elected.
