QUOTE
"Women are leaders in this state, a state that for 50 years has respected a woman's right to make her own reproductive health decisions. Today's women can only thrive in a state that protects their most basic rights -- the right to choose when and whether to start or expand a family. Georgia can't afford to go backwards on women's health and rights," stated Andrea Young, Executive Director of the ACLU of Georgia. "We will act to block this assault on women's health, rights, and self-determination."
