Atlanta–Today, U.S. District Judge Steven Jones issued an order blocking the implementation of Georgia’s Heartbeat law.  This order will stop the state of Georgia from protecting preborn babies with heartbeats from the scourge of abortion. Family Policy Alliance of Georgia has supported the Heartbeat bill from its inception and stands resolute in its fight to end abortion in Georgia.

Statement from Cole Muzio, Family Policy Alliance of Georgia President and Executive Director:

“Today’s ruling is disappointing but, sadly, not unexpected. We have long known that the fight to end one of history’s greatest injustices would be a long one, and we remain optimistically steadfast. Bad science, faulty precedent, and an illogical, radical agenda have, for too long, dictated that the preborn lack the most basic right to life. We look forward with great hope to that changing with the recognition of Georgia’s right to protect its most vulnerable citizens.”
