Several district attorneys in the Atlanta metro area have vowed not to prosecute women for seeking abortions after the state passed pro-life legislation banning abortions after six weeks of pregnancy.

“The Fulton County District Attorney’s Office said it has no plans to prosecute women under the new law. That extends to doctors, nurses and other healthcare providers as well. He intends to follow the Roe v. Wade decision,” according to 11Alive.

“DA Howard has no intention of ever prosecuting a woman under this new law,” said Chris Hopper, a spokesman for the Fulton County DA’s office.

Big League Politics reported on Georgia’s “heartbeat bill:”

The governor of Georgia kept his promise to sign a pro-life bill into law, signaling significant support for the pro-life community.

Gov. Brian Kemp signed the Living Infants Fairness and Equality (LIFE) Act, passed in both chambers of the Georgia Congress, which “will prohibit abortions in the state after a heartbeat is detected, as early as six weeks into a pregnancy,” according to Fox News.

The law is nicknamed “the heartbeat bill” because it bans abortions after a baby’s heart begins to beat. There are exceptions for cases of rape, incest, and if the mother’s life is in danger.

“Georgia is a state that values life,” Kemp reportedly said just before signing the bill. “We stand up for those who are unable to speak for themselves.”
