UPDATED: The Georgia Supreme Court revived the state’s restrictive abortion law Wednesday, again banning abortions after six weeks of pregnancy, at least temporarily.In its ruling, the high court put a lower court order that declared the ban unlawful on hold while the case is appealed, requiring abortion providers to again stop performing the procedure past six weeks into the pregnancy.Fulton County Superior Court Judge Robert McBurney ruled on November 15 the six-week ban was unlawful because it was enacted in 2019, when abortion was still legal nationwide under Roe v.

Wade. Georgia’s ban took effect in July, after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. Abortion rights advocates and physicians sued to overturn the law in July after a federal appeals court allowed it to take effect, arguing that the law was unconstitutional. PREVIOUS, July 20: A federal appeals court ruled today that Georgia’s restrictive 2019 abortion law should be allowed to take effect, overruling a lower court.The three-judge panel of the 11th U.S.

Circuit Court of Appeals said the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling in a Mississippi case that overturned Roe v. Wade and returned abortion law to the states, “makes clear no right to abortion exists under the Constitution, so Georgia may prohibit them.”The law in Georgia — a massive film and television production hub —  bans most abortions when there’s a detectable human heartbeat, which can be as early as six weeks, before women know they are pregnant.
