GA: Abortion providers wary after court strikes down ban

Source: SFGate

“Abortion providers in Georgia resumed performing the procedure beyond six weeks of pregnancy this week after a judge threw out the state’s abortion ban. But some said they are moving cautiously amid an ongoing legal fight that could just as quickly restore the restrictions. Phone calls to the carafem clinic in Atlanta surged starting Tuesday, when the judge’s ruling came out. The clinic resumed providing abortions up to 13 weeks of pregnancy on Wednesday, but staff has cautioned patients that the situation is ‘tenuous’, chief operations officer Melissa Grant said. ‘We will continue to take it as it is now right now and take it a day at a time and an hour at a time if that’s what it requires,’ she said in a phone interview. The Feminist Women’s Health Center, also in Atlanta, plans to resume abortions up to 22 weeks of pregnancy starting on Friday.” (11/17/22)
