The Georgia Supreme Court on Wednesday reinstated the Peach State’s heartbeat bill after a left-wing Fulton County judge overturned it.

The measure banned most abortions after six weeks as fetal heartbeat is typically detected then.

As Breitbart News reported, Fulton County Judge Robert C. I. McBurney struck down Georgia’s abortion ban, attempting to read the right to abortion into the state’s constitution — much in the same way Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey were.

McBurney’s opinion came after the overturn of Roe and Casey in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization and made a blatant appeal to substantive due process — the invention of constitutional rights by the judiciary — saying, “This ruling is merely a reinforcement of what ought to be for everyone the uncontroversial notion that, if the judicial branch has declared a constitutional right, legislatures exceed their authority, improperly expand their role, and fundamentally alter the balance struck by the separation of powers when they enact laws they know to be plainly and facially unconstitutional.”
