Amid reports that the U.S. Supreme Court is poised to overturn Roe v. Wade, GOP gubernatorial candidates Brian Kemp and David Perdue both stand ready to continue their extreme anti-choice records and ban abortion in Georgia if given the legal runway. Against the will of more than two-thirds of Georgians who support the half-century precedent set in Roe v. Wade, both David Perdue and Brian Kemp have used their elected positions and their campaigns to relentlessly attack womens’ reproductive freedom — and would double down on their anti-choice agenda if elected Georgia’s next governor.
Earlier today David Perdue announced he would call for a special legislative session if he were governor to push for a total ban on abortion in Georgia. As a U.S. Senator, Perdue introduced and voted in favor of abortion restrictions time and again, and has “promised to pursue more restrictions” on abortion if elected governor.
As governor, Brian Kemp signed what he bragged was “the toughest abortion bill in the country” into law in 2019, which would ban abortion before many women even know they’re pregnant. The 2019 abortion ban is currently held up in court, and could be enacted if Roe v. Wade is overturned.
