Medical Students Explain What’s At Stake With Georgia’s Proposed Abortion Bill
Georgia is at the very bottom of the national report card; it has one of the highest rates of
maternal mortality and
teen pregnancy. Over half of Georgia already lacks access to ob-gyns, while other areas suffer from a complete absence of care. Georgia’s rural women are disproportionately affected. By 2020, it is estimated that three-quarters of rural areas will lack access to an obstetrician, midwife, or family physician to safely care for women, mothers, and babies.
