Not long ago, Georgia stood as a state that led by its example: a diversified community & economy w leadership grounded in principle, not political cynicism. I proudly served in that leadership - fighting against wrong, working across the aisle for progress. 1/
From transportation to foster care to environmental protections, bipartisan support paved a way to make lives better in Republican & Democratic strongholds. We held our ideological beliefs, of course, but we understood that we all lived here. Together. 2/
And with one horrible exception, Georgia didn’t jeopardize stability, opportunity and leadership for dangerous legislation that treats the lives of women as political pawns. 3/
I’ve spoken to Republicans and business leaders (not necessarily the same thing) in the last few days who dismiss the harm of #HB481 as overwrought or, more simply, irrelevant. Because women’s healthcare isn’t their concern. Besides, they say, the courts will stop it. 4/
There is no leadership in damning women to the whims of yet another test of our humanity. #HB481 is bad for women bc reproductive injustice is real. It is bad for business bc women won’t forget. And it is a stain on a state that once knew how to light & lead the way. #Shame /end
