Post Dobbs, Eleventh Circuit Upholds Georgia Abortion Law

In SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective v. Governor of Georgia, the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit upheld a Georgia law that prohibits most abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected. The court based its decision on the United States Supreme Court’s recent holding in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, where the Court held the “Constitution does not prohibit the citizens of each state from regulating or prohibiting abortion.” The Eleventh Circuit also upheld the Georgia law on the grounds that its statutory definition of a “natural person” was not unconstitutionally vague.
