Georgia Republicans’ Extreme, Anti-Choice Agenda is Out of Touch

May 4, 2022

7 in 10 Georgians Support Roe v. Wade

The Supreme Court draft opinion showing that conservative Supreme Court justices are set to overturn Roe v. Wade is the result of Republicans in Georgia and across the country’s decades-long, radical war on the right to choose. While polls show that nearly 7 in 10 Georgians support the right to reproductive freedom established by Roe, Georgia Republicans are poised to continue their long fight against abortion rights.

Against the will of a majority of Georgians, Georgia Republicans – from incumbents like Brian Kemp and Chris Carr to candidates like Herschel Walker and David Perdue – have long records of opposing reproductive rights and promised to use their offices if elected to ban abortion. Governor Brian Kemp bragged about signing “the toughest abortion bill in the country” in 2019, while Attorney General Chris Car is defending Kemp’s abortion bill in court and urged the Supreme Court to dismantle Roe v. Wade. Meanwhile, David Perdue has promised to ban abortion if elected, and Herschel Walker joins the entire GOP Senate field in stating that he wants to make make all abortion illegal – even in cases of rape or incest.

The evidence is clear – Georgia Republicans’ extreme agenda is wildly unpopular and out of touch with Georgians, who overwhelming support Roe v. Wade and access to safe and legal abortion.
