MAGA Hot Mic: Georgia GOP Governor Brian Kemp
September 19, 2022
Today’s MAGA Hot Mic moment comes from none other than Georgia GOP Governor Brian Kemp.
Recently, Brian Kemp was caught on tape opening the door to banning Plan B and forms of contraceptives.
Heartland Signal: “During public appearance at the University of Georgia last week, Gov. Brian Kemp (R) expressed his openness to ban contraception depending on ‘where the legislatures are’… Unless the right to contraception is codified into law by Congress ― something that will not happen if the Republican party is in control ― it can be overturned by the Supreme Court similar to federal abortion rights.”
11Alive: “A person asks the governor if he has the power to ban Plan B, an emergency contraception known as the morning-after pill. Another voice, confirmed to be Kemp, said it’s possible but clarified Georgia’s General Assembly must be in a legislative session. He explained how it’s a possibility, but cited that lawmakers had to support the idea. However, the governor pointed out that since states have the power to construct policies around abortion, there are possibilities.”
Let’s not forget Kemp is responsible for signing one of the most restrictive abortion bans in the country.
Heartland Signal: “Kemp already signed one of the most restrictive abortion laws in the country in 2019, which bans all abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected. Cardiac activity can usually be detected in an embryo around six weeks of pregnancy, when most women do not even know they are pregnant yet.”
Brian Kemp and the Republican Party continue to demonstrate their relentless commitment to restricting women’s decisions about their own bodies.
