Judge Temporarily blocks ‘heartbeat’ abortion law

The City of Atlanta elated with judge decision

Screen Shot 2019-10-01 at 6.04.18 PMFinally things are taking a turn around in Atlanta. Just when things seemed bleak with film production companies pulling out left and right and actors refusing to walk red carpets due to the heartbeat abortion law; it seemed like things were on a downward spiral.

Screen Shot 2019-10-01 at 6.04.46 PMAccording to the Washington Examiner on Tuesday October 1st, it just might be the day one federal judge makes a lot of people happy for the following reasons:

A federal judge temporarily blocked a law in Georgia on Tuesday that would ban abortions after six weeks, once a fetal heartbeat is detected, which was supposed to take effect Jan. 1.

U.S. District Judge Steve Jones, an Obama appointee, sided with the American Civil Liberties Union, Planned Parenthood, and the Center for Reproductive Rights, who filed a complaint on behalf of abortion providers in June.

“In a state with a critical shortage of medical providers and some of the highest rates of maternal and infant deaths, especially among black Georgians, politicians should focus on expanding access to reproductive care, not banning abortion before someone even knows they’re pregnant,” said Talcott Camp, deputy director of the ACLU Reproductive Freedom Project.

The law, signed by Republican Gov. Brian Kemp in May, would make exceptions in cases of rape or incest, or if the mother’s life was at risk. Federal judges have issued injunctions against similar six-week bans in several states, including Kentucky and Ohio.

Actor  Michael Luwoye (The Gifted) lands series regular role on NBC’s Bluff City Law which airs Monday nights at 10pm. The Producer’s Channel got a chance to have lunch with the Michael Luwoye star  catch up with him on his latest role. We thought it would be hard imagining him out of character with Nola from Netflix’s ‘She’s Gotta Have it. However, once we saw him as attorney Anthony Little on ‘Bluff City Law’ with a totally different accent we fell more in love all over again with the new character.
