Anti-abortion bill clears Georgia Senate committee
Sen. Valencia Seay, left, and Sen. Jennifer Jordan, right, remain seated for a moment after the passage of a bill concerning abortion Monday, March 18, 2019, in Atlanta. A Georgia Senate committee approved a measure that would ban most abortions once a fetal heartbeat can be detected. Republicans in Georgia are joining others in many states moving to enact tough abortion restrictions, even though they're certain to be challenged in court, in hopes that recent appointments to the U.S. Supreme Court will find them constitutional.
