DNC Statement on Georgia Abortion Ban Ruling

DNC Chair Jaime Harrison released the following statement in response to the Georgia Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the state’s six-week abortion ban: 

“After Donald Trump paved the way for the Supreme Court to strike down Roe v. Wade, Brian Kemp and MAGA Republicans in Georgia have successfully implemented one of the strictest abortion bans in the country – effectively outlawing abortion before many women even know they are pregnant. This cruel and wildly unpopular abortion ban is another reminder of the freedoms at stake in 2024. While MAGA Republicans like Donald Trump and Brian Kemp are pushing to rip away freedoms and ban abortion, President Biden, Vice President Harris, and Democrats up and down the ballot are fighting for Americans to have more rights, not fewer.”
