Praise the Lord! The news today is good! From www.ChristianIndex.com –
A three-judge panel of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that a U.S. Supreme Court decision on June 24 overturning Roe v. Wade cleared the way for Georgia’s law to take effect.
The Georgia law is expected to stop close to 90 percent of the state’s abortions. It bans the procedure once a heartbeat is detected, which can be as early as six weeks into a pregnancy. Exceptions were included in the law that allow abortions in cases of rape or incest, when the woman’s life is in danger, or when the baby isn’t “viable.”
The three-judge panel said the Supreme Court’s decision overturning Roe v. Wade “makes clear no right to abortion exists under the Constitution, so Georgia may prohibit them.”
What does this mean for First Care Women’s Clinic?
