The Georgian Supreme Court thwarted a pro-abortion lower court judge’s effort to reintroduce the termination of pregnancies by request in Georgia.
Court Backs Abortion Ruling
The court decided 7-0 (one justice was disqualified, while one did not participate) that a 2019 “heartbeat” statute may be implemented right away.
Judge Robert McBurney of the Fulton County Superior Court ruled on November 15 to invalidate the law, essentially banning abortions beyond 42 days and putting healthcare services in Georgia out of employment just before Christmas.
McBurney’s ruling exemplifies the rearguard fight undertaken by the kids of Moloch and a collection of liberal friends in the courts to maintain a license to terminate a fetus. After the Dobbs vs. Jackson Women’s Health decision on Roe vs. Wade and Planned Parenthood vs. Casey, numerous judges and tribunals could not wrap their heads around the notion that pregnancy termination was not recognized by a wrong understanding of the American Constitution.
In the McBurney instance, despite the fact that Georgia law was never contested or ruled down, the judge determined that it was unlawful since Roe and Casey were standards at the time the Georgia legislature established the law.
The 2-week long restriction, which was in place from July, was repealed on Tuesday, as well as the mandate that doctors disclose to the Department of Public Health whenever an abortion occurred under the state’s small allowances, for example in cases of rape where a formal complaint has been made.

This is the right decision imo, and I'm thankful for it. #ChooseLifehttps://t.co/fSqKTXtNec

In the court decision, Fulton County Superior Court Judge Robert C. I. McBurney deemed the regulations to be clearly unconstitutional as they were allowed to pass 3 years ago and prior to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which ended protected status for abortion access.
McBurney stated in his judgment that according to Dobbs, it might one day get to be the legislation of the state of Georgia, but only once our legislature decides in the full view of public scrutiny which will unquestionably and rightfully participate in such a crucial and pivotal debate if that privileges of fetuses rationalize such a limitation on women’s right to making decisions for their own body’s and confidentiality.

As of now, the three-year-old prohibitions exist only on paper.
Ed Whelan, who is a National Review contributor and is worth reading, debunks this claim. If McBurney’s decision had been anything other than false sophistry, the Supreme Court would not have considered Dobbs since it contradicted history. The same goes for Brown vs The Board of Education, as the rule of the nation was Plessy v. Ferguson.
Before rendering a final verdict, the Georgian Supreme Court signaled it would entertain a re-examination of McBurney’s judgment. The reality that the judge determined on his directive within 6 days and overwhelmingly portends ill for Baal’s troops. However, it is not a guarantee that a states supreme court will do the proper thing. The states supreme court of Kentucky continues to permit abortions despite the fact that state law forbids them.
