Abortion Law: Requirements in Georgia
Do you know the law in GA? Know before you go.
The Heartbeat Law is not yet in effect.
In 2005, Georgia passed the “Women’s Right to Know Act,”which indicates that an abortion can only be performed in GA if the patient has “Voluntary and Informed Consent” at least 24 hours before an abortion.
This act requires a review of materials provided by the Department of Public Health listing:
- Description of abortion procedures and risks
- Medical risks of pregnancy and childbirth
- Agencies and services that can assist you during pregnancy
- Adoption agencies
- Description of fetal development
- Statement about fetal pain
