ATLANTA –  Today, the State of Georgia filed an appeal in SisterSong v Kemp, which struck down the unconstitutional abortion ban that the legislature passed by a margin of two votes in 2019.

“The district court blocked Georgia’s abortion ban, because it violates over 50 years of Supreme Court precedent and fails to trust women to make their own personal decisions. This case has always been about one thing: letting her decide. Abortion care remains legal throughout the State of Georgia,” Sean J. Young, legal director of the ACLU of Georgia.
