It also criminalizes GA residents who seek treatment in other states, as well as anyone who helps a woman with her travel to another state for treatment (presumably this also includes non-residents of Georgia as I understand the text). A state should not be able to criminalize lawful activity in another state and especially should not be in the business of levying charges against non-residents aiding someone in a procedure that may be legal elsewhere. If that is somehow upheld by courts, then blue states should start doing the same thing but for progressive causes.some of these abortion bills are fucking comical
they include felony crimes for:
-using birth control
it's really not about abortion at all
They are just taking a page out of the federal law handbook.
The United States already criminalizes lawful activity in other nations. If you are a U.S. citizen and travel, you are still legally bound by U.S. laws even if the laws of where you travel are far more lenient. The Supreme Court will probably uphold it just to avoid the nightmare of the resulting federal lawsuits.
That said, they really should strike this down. I do not see this ending well for the nation.
