Anti-Abortion Bill heads to Senate floor

Atlanta Headlines March 19, 2019

The Georgia Senate Science and Technology Committee passed a bill that puts new restrictions on the right to abortion. The GOP-dominated legislature will now take up the bill. It is expected to pass. A similar committee in the House passed the bill earlier in March.

Referred to as the "Heartbeat Bill," the measure would essentially ban abortions after 6 weeks. The Republicans in Georgia and several other states are looking to bring a challenge to the US Supreme Court with the new makeup of Justices.

Governor Kemp has pledged to sign the bill should it clear the full House and Senate.
