“In my lifetime Georgia has advanced from a state that divided white and black citizens through strict racial segregation to a state that could host the Centennial Olympic Games and welcome people of all races, creeds, and colors. This legislation would deny Georgia’s students the fullness of that story. I want my granddaughter and all Georgia’s school children to love their country and to love the truth. You can’t love one without the other,” said Andrea Young, executive director of the ACLU of Georgia.
“All Georgia students just want to live their lives without intrusion from our state legislature. Transgender students deserve the chance to succeed and thrive like any other student,” Nneka Ewulonu, ACLU of Georgia staff attorney regarding SB 435.
“Medical care should be guided by a patient’s health and well-being, not politics. The evidence is clear: medication abortion is safe and effective. SB 456 is contrary to longstanding medical science and constitutional principles and should not become law,” Nneka Ewulonu, ACLU of Georgia staff attorney regarding SB 456.
