Democratic Party of Georgia Chair Nikema Williams Statement on Senate Passage of House Bill 481

March 22, 2019

ATLANTA – Today, in response to Georgia Republicans’ vote to pass abortion ban legislation through the Senate, Democratic Party of Georgia Chairwoman Nikema Williams issued the following statement:

“With today’s vote, Georgia Republicans chose once again to betray our state’s women, doctors, and future by letting extremism come before the health and bodily autonomy of Georgia women. These senators heard from medical providers, advocates, and their own constituents that banning abortion in Georgia will literally threaten women’s lives, and Republicans are willfully ignoring the consequences. We are coming for their seats – and they should be afraid.”
