NEWS BRIEF: Georgia doctors applaud Sen. Warnockâ€™s support of abortion protections
Standing up for Womenâ€™s Health Protection Act
Physicians in Georgia are coming out in support of Sen. Raphael Warnock for voting to uphold the Women’s Health Protection Act, which would have protected the federal right to access abortion care. Republicans in the Senate defeated the bill Wednesday after it passed in the U.S. House of Representatives.
“I applaud Sen. Raphael Warnock for voting in support of the Women’s Health Protection Act, which would have safeguarded people’s right to access abortion,” said Dr. Didi Saint Louis, an Atlanta OBGYN and member of the Committee to Protect Health Care. “Physicians will continue to work to get people the abortion care they need and support leaders who respect patients’ privacy to make decisions around abortion with their doctors, free from political interference.” npr.org
