State Senator Michael Williams, Republican candidate for governor, issued the following statement on his support of Fetal Heartbeat legislation. Williams announced his support at the Gwinnett Republican Party Gubernatorial Debate on March 10th.
“The weakest and most vulnerable members of our society are under attack by far-left activist judges and organizations such as Planned Parenthood that celebrate in the deaths of unborn babies. Georgia can ban abortion after a heartbeat is detected at six to eight weeks if we have a fearless conservative leading our state.
“Other candidates in this race pretend they are serious about abortion, and even write statements claiming to be tough on abortion. The facts are clear: The Fetal Heartbeat bill is the most pro-life legislation in the country. Brian Kemp’s latest statement is another attempt to latch on to my conservative agenda after witnessing the positive response I received. We need a governor that will be a fearless conservative, without waiting for the results of public opinion before taking a stand. That’s the difference between a career politician like Brian, who was conceived and groomed by political consultants, and myself who proudly represents the working class people of Georgia.”
