QUOTE
“The choice of when and whether to have a family is private and personal. Politicians have no business inserting  themselves into decisions made by women and couples in consultation with their own faith, their own family and their own physician,” stated Andrea Young, Executive Director of the ACLU of Georgia. “The appropriate place for our elected officials to act with regard to the health of Georgia’s women and families is by expanding Medicaid and making healthcare accessible to all.”
