Sonny Perdue on Abortion

Republican GA Governor

 


Parental notification for minors

During his 2002 run for governor, Perdue won the endorsement of Georgia Right to Life. The next year, Perdue urged legislators to send an informed consent measure to his desk requiring those seeking an abortion to wait 24 hours after receiving state- mandated information on what Perdue called "the physical and psychological damages that occur afterwards." That law, which included a provision requiring parental notification for minors, was passed and´┐Żsigned by Perdue in 2005.

Require information session 24 hours before abortion

Governor Sonny Perdue signed into law today the Woman's Right to Know Act (House Bill 197). This legislation updates Georgia's abortion requirements by ensuring that women are given the opportunity to make an informed decision about the procedure.

HB197 stipulates that women considering an abortion should receive accurate and adequate information 24 hours in advance of the procedure. This information is to include the medical risks of the procedure, probable gestational age of the unborn child, medical risks of carrying the child to term, medical assistance available for prenatal care, childbirth, and neonatal care, and that the father is liable for child support. The bill also seeks to protect minors by requiring that an unemancipated minor be accompanied by a parent or guardian, who must show proper identification and state that they are the lawful parent or guardian. Parents or guardians must also receive notice 24 hours before an abortion is performed.
