Posted January 06, 2018 12:57:11With the Affordable Care Act taking effect in a few weeks, and some states passing their own anti-abortion bills, the question has arisen of which states will have the most funding available to cover the cost of a mid-term abortion.
And according to a new report, the answer is Georgia.
The state has the third highest number of abortions in the nation at 2,908 per 1,000 women of reproductive age, according to data from the Guttmacher Institute.
The next highest is Mississippi with 2,065 abortions per 1.000 women, while the next lowest is Arkansas with 2 (a state with a low abortion rate).
While Georgia is not a hotbed of abortion clinics, it does have one of the most restrictive laws in the country when it comes to abortion access.
Under the state’s new law, it is illegal for doctors to refer patients for abortions if the fetus has a genetic defect.
But it is also illegal to perform an abortion on a fetus with a chromosomal abnormality.
The Georgia legislature passed the bill on a party-line vote in February, and the bill went into effect immediately.
Since then, the number of women seeking abortions has been plummeting, as the state has seen an increase in miscarriages, stillbirths and stillbirth-related deaths.
The Georgia Health Department reported that nearly 10,000 cases of complications from abortion have been reported since the law went into force, which is an increase of nearly 5 percent compared to the same time last year.
A few months ago, Georgia became the first state in the United States to pass a law requiring abortion providers to post signs warning women of the potential risks of abortion and that they are not welcome in their own homes.
The sign is meant to warn women about the risks associated with abortion, including the potential for fetal anomalies.
The sign is not visible in the open, but a sign posted on a Georgia women’s health clinic in January read: Abortion is not for everyone.
And we cannot be responsible for those who choose to have an abortion, whether in Georgia or anywhere else.
