Georgia judge blocks state's law outlawing most abortions after six weeks

A judge blocked Georgia's law outlawing almost all abortions after six weeks on Tuesday, ruling that it violated the U.S. Constitution when it was enacted by the state legislature three years ago.

The law, passed in 2019, restricts abortions once cardiac activity can be detected by an ultrasound, which is usually around six weeks. It includes exceptions for rape and incest as long as a police report was filed, and allows for later abortions if a pregnant woman's life is at risk.

It was blocked for three years until the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in June, freeing states to pass their own regulations on abortion. ..........

Romans 12:16-21

Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly, do not claim to be wiser than you are.  Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.  If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all…do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

The Constitution hasn't changed over the last three years.  So how does this law violate the Constitution?
If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

He appears to be saying that it violated the Constitution when it was originally enacted by Georgia - because at that time the Constitution included Roe v. Wade - and that this past unconstitutionality has somehow tainted the law and made it somehow "not a law" even though it was validly enacted and has not been repealed by Georgia itself.

The judge is basically ruling that segregation should still be the law of the land in Georgia until they pass a new law saying it isn't.  The only relevance derived from Brown v. Board of Education is the date that it was decided.  If Georgia had outlawed segregation before Brown was decided, then that law would be null and void today according to this judge.

Silly judge.  Roe was never part of the Constitution.

Georgia’s Void Ab Initio Doctrine: Explained and Applied

However, before reaching the merits of Plaintiffs’ constitutional claims as they exist today, the Court must first consider whether there is even a law “on the books” for it to assess.7 In Georgia, it is fundamental that “[l]egislative acts in violation of this Constitution or the Constitution of the United States are void, and the judiciary shall so declare them.” Ga. Const., Art. I, § II, ¶ V; see also Beall v. Beall, 8 Ga. 210, 219–20 (1850). But there is a timing element to this analysis: “The time with reference to which the constitutionality of an act of the general assembly is to be determined is the date of its passage, and, if it is unconstitutional, then it is forever void.” Jones v. McCaskill, 112 Ga. 453, 37 S.E. 724, 725 (1900) (emphasis added)

The wording throughout the decision overflows with bias.  Nothing fair or impartial contained in it anywhere.
If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.
