Hypocrites: November democratic presidential debate to be held in Georgia, home to fetal heartbeat bill they protested

Demorats are nothing if not consistent: Double standards are the only standards they have.

Earlier this year Georgia Governor Brian Kemp signed the state’s heartbeat bill which bans abortion after a fetal heartbeat has been detected. The law goes into effect in 2020, unless successfully challenged.

Progressives went ballistic before this bill was signed into law because they love abortion.

Celebrities, corporations and politicians demanded their industry boycott Georgia. Just a few examples of those who called for/suggested a boycott:

B-list celebrities Alyssa Milano and George Takai along with the Writers Guild of America
Actresses/comedians Tiffany Haddish and Kristen Wiig
Disney and Netflix

Georgia House Democrats “condemned” Kemp’s signing of the bill: “The signing of this law ushers in a new era of nightmarish government intrusion into the reproductive rights and medical decision-making of all women in Georgia.:

Even the DNC expressed its concern and stated, “women’s lives are on the line in Georgia.”

They said, “Georgia’s abortion ban is only the latest example of how the Trump administration’s anti-women policies have emboldened legislators across the country to attack women’s access to health care,” the DNC wrote in a press release.

But what do you know…it’s now been announced that the fifth democratic presidential debate will be hosted by the recently opened Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta.

I guess sticking to your principles is difficult when you can otherwise support a fellow democrat and his new business in a state that threatens women’s “reproductive rights.”

HYPOCRITES.

Federal judge blocks Georgia’s abortion ban, stopping heartbeat bill from becoming law

Planned Parenthood’s verdict: A “victory” for people.

From Yahoo: A federal judge has temporarily blocked a law in Georgia that would have banned abortions when a fetal heartbeat is detected in the womb.

District Court Judge Steve C. Jones issued a preliminary injunction Tuesday that will stop the law, known as the ‘heartbeat bill,’ from taking effect while the case is argued in court. The bill was signed by Gov. Brian Kemp in May and was set to become law on Jan. 1.

A fetal heartbeat is typically detected at six weeks, which is before many women know they are pregnant.

The heartbeat bill’s exceptions include cases that involve rape or incest when the woman files a police report. It allows for abortions when a fetus is determined not to be viable or the mother’s health is in jeopardy.

The current Georgia law allows abortions up to the 20th week of pregnancy.

Planned Parenthood Southeast was joined by Sistersong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective, Feminist Women’s Health Center and a number of patients and doctors in filing the legal challenge.

Staci Fox, president and chief executive officer of Planned Parenthood Southeast, said the decision was a “victory for the people of Georgia and the entire nation.”

“To the countless Georgians who spoke out against this ban and were ignored, we promised to keep fighting every step of the way and we have,” Fox said in a statement. “To our partners, we promised we were in this together and we are. To Governor Kemp, we promised to see you in court, and we did. But most importantly, to our patients, we promised to protect access to safe, legal abortion and together we have.”

Kemp’s office said Tuesday that it was still reviewing the court ruling.

“Despite today’s outcome, we remain confident in our position,” said Candice Broce, a spokeswoman for Kemp. “We will continue to fight for the unborn and work to ensure that all Georgians have the opportunity to live, grow, and prosper.”

Georgia was one of seven states, along with Alabama, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, and Ohio to pass similar abortion bans this year. The laws have been challenged or already blocked in each state.

“The court recognized today that this law is blatantly unconstitutional and a clear attempt to overturn Roe v. Wade,” said Emily Nestler, senior staff attorney at the Center for Reproductive Rights. “Instead of passing laws that restrict the rights of pregnant women, Georgia lawmakers should be implementing policies that help pregnant women.”

Nestler added that Georgia has the worst maternal mortality rate in the country.

Republican lawmakers say they are passing abortion bans with hopes that at least one challenge will escalate to the Supreme Court and overturn Roe v. Wade.

Kemp said earlier this year that the abortion ban was meant to “protect the innocent” and “champion the vulnerable.”

Actress calls her abortion, “the best decision I have ever made”

I’ve never heard of this actress, Jameela Jamil. She’s a Brit who moved to the US to pursue her acting career. She’s also unaware of the definition of “inhumane.”

From Yahoo: Jameela Jamil disclosed she had an abortion after last week’s signing of a controversial six-week abortion ban in Georgia.

“I had an abortion when I was young, and it was the best decision I have ever made,” Jamil wrote on Twitter. “Both for me, and for the baby I didn’t want, and wasn’t ready for, emotionally, psychologically and financially. So many children will end up in foster homes. So many lives ruined. So very cruel,” she said of the ban.

Inhumane and cruel partial birth abortion

Signed last week by Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, the so-called “heartbeat bill” outlaws abortion after six weeks of pregnancy. That’s usually when doctors can start to detect a fetal heartbeat, but it’s also before many women realize they are pregnant.

This anti-abortion law in Georgia is so upsetting, inhumane, and blatantly demonstrative of a hatred of women, a disregard for our rights, bodies, mental health, and essentially a punishment for rape victims, forcing to carry the baby of their rapist,” wrote Jamil.

The actress, 33, also clarified that she was not criticizing foster care.

“Ps.. this isn’t any diss at ALL to foster homes. I’m in awe of people who take in children in need of a family and a home: but if Georgia becomes inundated with children who are unwanted or unable to be cared for, it will be hard to find great fostering for them all.”
