Holy shit. If you thought things in Georgia couldn’t possibly get any worse. You were being a real naive bitch!
Earlier today, Georgia governor Brian Kemp signed the “Heartbeat Bill,” making it illegal for women to seek abortions as early as six weeks after conception.
Additionally, women who do receive an abortion in the state of Georgia can be tried for first degree murder. Traveling outside of the state for an abortion, or helping a woman travel outside of the state for an abortion would also be punishable by law.
Welcome to Gilead ladies!
But what about women (and men) who think this shit is absolutely terrifying and that it’s time to get the fuck out of Georgia?
Governor Brian Kemp has just signed a new bill into law to solve that problem too!
HB 666, dubbed the “The Sinking Ship Bill,” will make it unlawful for any current Georgia resident to move outside of this shitty terrible fuckhole of a state starting on July 1, 2020. Leaving the state will be punishable by a minimum sentence of 5 years imprisonment—in Georgia—seriously, you can’t leave!
Governor Kemp explained “We realized that it was much easier to pass legislation which would punish citizens for leaving the state than it would be to fund programs to keep them happy or to allow women to have autonomy over their own bodies—blehh.”
He added that constitutionally, he saw no problems with legally prohibiting residents from leaving the backwards, festering dog turd of a state.
