Georgia’s abortion law is back after a Supreme Court ruling

The Georgia Supreme Court on Wednesday temporarily blocked a Fulton County Supreme Court ruling overturning the state’s abortion law.

A Fulton County Superior Court judge ruled on November 15 that Georgia’s law banning most abortions after six weeks is illegal because the law was unconstitutional at the time it was passed. The verdict went into effect nationwide with immediate effect.
