Breaking News: Family Policy Alliance of Georgia Celebrates Passage of Georgia’s Heartbeat Legislation
We did it! Thanks to your support, the Georgia House, today, took the final vote on HB 481 – the Heartbeat Bill – which protects preborn children who have a heartbeat from death by abortion. The bill now goes to Governor Kemp, who has promised to sign it into law.
The bill, which passed the House 92-78, establishes the personhood and protection of the unborn across Georgia. It is a pivotal moment in our state’s history as we cherish and value innocent human life. As this legislation was being considered, many from the left attempted to impose their will by bullying Georgia legislators. Yet, scientific truth won out and, the more this bill was studied, the more support it earned.
This is the culmination of months of hard work on the part of many pro-lifers across the state – most especially Rep. Ed Setzler who championed this bill from the beginning. This bill holds the government accountable to families by recognizing the value of each child. It holds fathers accountable to mothers and children by requiring child support. It affirms common sense and self-evident truths. It is the bill the growing pro-life community has been waiting for, and we have hope that the strength of this bill will echo far beyond the borders of our state.
The moment Governor Brian Kemp fulfills his campaign promise to sign the most pro-life legislation in the country will be recognized as the moment that turned the tide against one of the greatest human atrocity’s mankind has ever known – abortion.
As this legislative session winds to a close, we are so grateful for each one of you who made this possible.
There are still several days left in the legislative session and our work must continue. But today, we celebrate this victory.
Winning for life,
President and Executive Director
