Press Release: ACLU of Georgia – The Fight for Reproductive Freedom and Justice Continues
ATLANTA — A leaked draft opinion published by Politico hints that the Supreme Court has decided to overrule Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. The American Civil Liberties Union of Georgia reminds state residents that this is not the Court’s final order and the organization will continue to fight for reproductive freedom and justice in the state.
“Georgia’s ban on abortion remains blocked in the courts and abortions are still safe and legal in the state,” said ACLU of Georgia Legal Director Sean J. Young. “The ACLU of Georgia will assess next steps as soon as possible after the Supreme Court issues its final decision.”
The ACLU of Georgia will continue to protect and defend a woman’s right to make decisions about whether to start or expand her family.
Nationwide, the ACLU will not concede its fight for reproductive freedom and justice no matter what decision the Supreme Court issues. “However the decision ultimately comes down, the ACLU will never stop fighting for a person’s right to choose when and if to have a child,” said ACLU Executive Director Anthony Romero in response to the reporting of the leaked opinion on Roe v. Wade.
