ICYMI: GOP #GASEN Candidates Support Texas’s Dangerous Six-Week Abortion Ban

September 8, 2021

Following the Supreme Court decision to uphold Texas’s dangerous six-week abortion ban that makes no exceptions for cases of rape or incest, every Georgia GOP Senate candidate came out in support of the efforts to strip away the right of individuals and families to make their own health care decisions. The Texas law, supported by the entire Republican Senate field, empowers citizens to file lawsuits against anyone who “aids or abets the performance or inducement of an abortion” — and to collect a “bounty of at least $10,000” if their claim prevails.

  • Kelvin King “applauded the ruling” that opens the door to reversing Roe v. Wade and limiting Georgians’ right to make their own health care decisions.

“From setting bounties on health care providers to barring medical intervention even in cases of rape and incest, every GOP Senate candidate is in support of egregious government overreach into Georgians’ private health care decisions,” said Dan Gottlieb, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “The stakes of this upcoming election for Georgia families couldn’t be clearer.”
