We had to turn her away

This new law is already deeply affecting patients in Georgia. I recently had to turn away a pregnant patient who was 8 weeks pregnant. She was unaware she was pregnant prior to her visit, and I was unable to offer her all of the options that should be available to all pregnant people. Instead, I had to describe the new law in Georgia and the need for her to travel out of state to seek care. This patient was uninsured, non-English speaking, and unable to afford to travel for abortion services. HB481 goes against everything we are taught as doctors. It is a disgrace to the medical world and to all people capable of getting pregnant. We must stand up for our patients, no one should be forced to carry a pregnancy against their will.
