Examining Justice, Episode 3: The Quest for Reproductive Justice in Georgia
In the latest episode of Examining Justice, we take a deeper look at Georgia’s abortion ban legislation. On June 28, 2019, the ACLU and partner organizations filed its case SisterSong v Kemp to stop the ban from going into effect. On October 1, 2019, the Federal District Court ruled that Georgia’s ban on abortion care is unconstitutional under decades of U.S. Supreme Court precedent. This means that the law is blocked while this litigation is pending.
In this episode, you will hear about the unconstitutionality of HB 481 — Georgia’s abortion ban — and how this bill would impact the most vulnerable women in Georgia. Through interviews with Andrea Young, Kosha Tucker, Christopher Bruce, and Kwajelyn Jackson, the episode will explore how the personal has always been political through unpacking the importance of reproductive justice in Georgia.
