Georgia Bans Late-Term Abortion, Asst. Suicide

Ad Feedback

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal has signed into law two measures banning late-term abortions and assisted suicide.

The abortion law bans the procedure after 20-weeks of pregnancy but makes an exception for a pregnancy that threatens the life of health of the mother.

"This legislation provides humane protection to innocents capable of feeling pain, while making an important exception for in the case of medically futile pregnancies," the governor said in a statement released by his office Tuesday.

Georgia is the eighth state to ban most late-term abortions.
Meanwhile, the law outlawing assisted suicides makes it a felony to help someone take their own life.

"Today, we are reaffirming Georgia's commitment to preserving the sanctity of all human life," Deal said.
