Opponents of Georgia anti-abortion ‘heartbeat’ bill set sights on 2020

The final vote on tough new abortion restrictions had barely been tallied when Democrats rushed from the House chambers armed with a vow to channel their outrage into political activity.

One after another, abortion rights supporters promised to make Republicans pay for narrowly approving House Bill 481, which would outlaw most abortions in Georgia as soon as a doctor detects a “heartbeat.”

They will aim some of their outrage at Gov. Brian Kemp, who is expected to sign the measure perhaps as soon as mid-April. But they’re also focusing on another group of politicians: suburban Republicans in the Legislature — whether they voted for the bill or not.
