Georgia Abortion Law Post-Dobbs

In 2019, the Georgia Legislature passed a bill entitled Living Infants Fairness and Equality (LIFE) Act (H.B. 481).  The Governor signed the bill into law but before it went into effect, litigation immediately commenced with the filing of a federal lawsuit.  In 2020, the U.S. District Court granted an injunction and the law remained inactive and unenforceable. Sistersong v. Kemp, 472 F. Supp. 3d 1297 (N.D. Ga. 2020).  The Attorney General appealed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit which withheld ruling due to the pending Dobbs case in the U.S. Supreme Court.
