(Worthy News) - Attorneys representing two Southern states with restrictive abortion laws faced federal judges on Monday in court cases that could reverse recent gains made by pro-life advocates.
In Georgia, lawyers representing the state argued before U.S. District Judge Steve Jones in Atlanta that Georgia’s ban on abortions after a fetal heartbeat can be detected should be allowed to take effect while a legal challenge is pending.
In Nashville, Tennessee, a federal trial began Monday over the state’s mandatory 48-hour waiting period before a woman can receive an abortion, a law enacted in 2015. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More...) ]
