Priests for Life National Director Frank Pavone released the following statement regarding the Georgia Heartbeat law that was upheld today in the state Supreme Court:
“We are grateful for this victory in Georgia. As I have been explaining, the Dobbs decision is an unfolding victory inasmuch as lower courts now need to regard it as precedent on abortion. For 50 years, judges and legislatures have gotten used to thinking that abortion is a constitutional right and have formed a knee-jerk reaction against laws that protect unborn children. Now it is time to get used to a new way of thinking, namely, that if the people and their elected representatives want to protect these children, they can!
“We can look forward now to many victories like we see now in Georgia.”
