Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp appeared on the Martha Zoller Show to comment, for the first time, on the leaked report that the Supreme Court’s Republican appointees have voted to overturn Roe v. Wade, carrying out the next step in the Republicans’ years-long effort to end the right to abortion.
LISTEN HERE TO KEMP’S FIRST REMARKS ON THE ROE V. WADE NEWS
Kemp condemns the “tragedy” that the draft — now confirmed to be legitimate — leaked, but adds, referencing the six-week abortion ban he signed that is currently in federal court: “That doesn’t change the fact that Georgia, by one vote, I might add, because of our hard work and really pushing and working with the General Assembly, passed the heartbeat bill. And we stood up to the cancel culture in Hollywood and we continue to fight that in the court of law.”
Kemp also adds, “And we’re going to end up in a Supreme Court one day unless this ruling comes out and changes that and it becomes the law of the land.”
Polling has shown that 80% of Americans believe abortion should be legal, and that 60% of Americans oppose the Supreme Court’s GOP appointees overturning Roe.
