Since the ACLU obtained a temporary injunction, halting
implementation of the state's fetal pain-based abortion
ban, Georgia has set a February court date to defend its
The new law bans abortions after 20 weeks, because the baby can
feel pain by that point, if not earlier. Suzanne Ward of Georgia Right to
Life tells OneNewsNow more about the injunction.
"It will guarantee that innocent children will continue to be
killed here in Georgia until this case is resolved," she laments.
"The issue really isn't even about abortion; it's about being
humane. Similar laws across the country have been challenged
unsuccessfully, but going forward, Georgia Right to Life hopes that
the case is resolved quickly."
Ward cites a CNN survey from earlier this year indicating the
public's growing support for life. Given that, she feels this court
case "represents another attempt of a minority view to overturn the
view of the majority of Georgians."
"So, we feel like with this injunction, the ACLU has
demonstrated a very selective view of equality," the pro-lifer
submits. "They champion the rights of the mother and yet blatantly
disregard the rights of the baby."
Ward believes that once evidence is presented in court, the law
recognizing a baby at 20 weeks and afterwards suffers excruciating
pain during abortion will be implemented.
