ATLANTA – Tonight, the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals issued a stay in the Georgia abortion ban case, SisterSong v Kemp.


“The court’s stay means that Georgia’s abortion ban remains blocked until further notice from the court. Meanwhile, women will continue to be able to make their own healthcare decisions as U.S. Supreme Court precedent requires,” said Sean J. Young, legal director of the ACLU of Georgia.
