As you probably know, Georgia just passed an abortion law that essentially removes a woman’s right to choose.
With Trump in the White House and the likes of Brett Kavanaugh making up a majority of the Supreme Court, the opponents of reproductive rights are making their move.
They believe this is their moment.
Georgia’s law, signed by Gov. Brian Kemp on Tuesday, bans abortion once a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which can be as early as six weeks, before some women even know they are pregnant.
The bill becomes law in 2020.
The National Education Association is scheduled to hold the Representative Assembly in 2020 in Atlanta.
How can they?
I know it is a logistical nightmare to change these plans. But trust me, they need to get on it now.
Holding the Representative Assembly in Atlanta brings a ton of educators’ money to that city.
The NEA also has a long history of supporting women’s rights, including reproductive rights.
Which is why they should look somewhere other than Georgia to meet.
Or just skip a year.
