Rossville, Georgia, bans abortion clinics

Council members in Rossville unanimously passed an ordinance Monday to forbid abortion clinics, the Times Free Press reports. Rossville is in North Georgia, just across the line from Chattanooga.

Mayor Teddy Harris said they wish to keep abortion clinics out because they could bring “drama” to the city.

There is no abortion clinic in Rossville, and the ordinance does allow for abortions to occur within the city if they occur at a hospital by a licensed physician, are deemed by that doctor to be necessary to save the woman’s life, and the doctor can certify that the baby would not survive out of the womb.
