Advocates worry Georgia’s abortion law will impact treatments for miscarriage…
It’s been more than a month since a federal court enacted Georgia’s abortion law House Bill 481, banning nearly all abortions at about six weeks of pregnancy, when ultrasound machines can detect electrical pulsing in the womb and before many people know they are pregnant.
The law is already fueling fears in Georgia that it may also make it harder for some patients to access miscarriage management because the treatment uses the same procedures as abortion.
