GA-GOV: HOT MIC: Brian Kemp open to banning contraception

During public appearance at the University of Georgia last week, Gov. Brian Kemp (R) expressed his openness to ban contraception depending on “where the legislatures are.”

“You could take up pretty much anything but you got to be in the legislative session to do that,” Kemp said in comments provided by a Democratic source on the condition of anonymity. “I think, I’d have to check and see because there are a lot of legalities.

Kemp already signed one of the most restrictive abortion laws in the country in 2019, which bans all abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected. Cardiac activity can usually be detected in an embryo around six weeks of pregnancy, when most women do not even know they are pregnant yet.

Since the Supreme Court overturned the federal right to abortion in June and gave the power to regulate the procedure back to the states, Republican lawmakers have been accelerating their anti-abortion policy with talks of contraception bans.

1. Hey ladies they're not stopping with abortion

They want to eliminate IUDs, morning after pills, maybe birth control pills and who knows what else.

2. Kemp: "Ladies! We need MORE white babies born ."

Republicans of his ilk speak in code.

Deplorable.

4. If they want to have more white babies why not make it more attractive

To women to have babies? Like guaranteed pre natal care, maternity leave, stipend for the child care. ?

6. Lol because then the deplorables would think they're dirty communist democrats,

And that just isn't nearly misogynistic enough for the average Trump voter.

8. If they start claiming some common birth control methods are abortions, then anyone ever in a

relationship that used those could be presumed to have had abortions and needs to STFU about it.

10. I wonder if he's ever been pregnant?

Or ever been unable to sleep because his period is late and he's terrified he might be pregnant.

I thought not.

11. The headline is a stretch.

Kemp never said he was "open to outlawing contraception" and that framing is an invention.

Instead Kemp came up with a number of ways of saying no, without saying no.

His was not the full-throated endorsement of contraception rights we would hope for in a Democratic candidate, and I hope Stacey Abrams beats his ass, but the way this story is being spun is borderline.
